State agencies would be blocked from buying uniforms that are made overseas under legislation introduced in the Ohio Senate.

Sen. Charleta Tavares, D-Columbus, wants to ensure the offices are spending public funds on clothing made in the United States.

The short legislation states simply, “No state agency shall purchase or otherwise receive any uniforms or other apparel articles unless the textiles, materials and supplies used in the uniforms or other apparel articles are entirely grown, produced or manufactured in the United States.”
