The Portman Bill was signed by the White House and will effect hundreds of PPE companies in the US that do business with the Federal Government as they will have to purchase Made in America PPE.
Restoring America’s capacity to manufacture PPE, everything from face masks and surgical wear to medical supplies, is critical to keeping the nation’s hospitals functioning in times of crisis. The “Make PPE in America Act” will require a wide range of federal agencies–including Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, and the Veterans Administration–to purchase American-made PPE. The bill also requires federal agencies to issue long-term contracts to U.S. manufacturers. (click below to open)
“Make PPE in America Act” Mandates a Shift to U.S.-Based PPE Supply Chain
The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the lack of domestic production of PPE (personal protective equipment), which makes this U.S. supply chain extremely vulnerable. The new “Make PPE in America Act,” part of the just-signed Infrastructure Bill, is an admission of this vulnerability and addresses the fact that the United States requires a robust, secure and wholly domestic PPE supply chain to safeguard public health and national security.
