President Trump issued an executive order Tuesday aimed at ensuring that federally-funded projects utilize U.S.-made materials and that workers entering the U.S. under the H-1B visa program do not take jobs from American workers. The order requires the Department of Commerce to issue guidance to federal agencies within 60 days and for all agencies to report on compliance within 150 days. The text of the order is available online.
