Do you think its a good idea to require the state of Kansas to buy American-made products as long as it’s feasible and doesn’t raise the cost by more than 25 percent?

“ I think it would be fine as long as they were not spending a ton on it. I don’t like it being mandatory, but it’s a good idea.”
“ Sure. Anytime you can keep the jobs in our own neck of the woods payrolls will (rise) in the same area and they will spend more.”
“I don’t see a problem with it. Promoting domestic production and goods is a valuable thing for us. ”
“You should do it because supporting a domestic contractor brings more tax revenue back into the local economy. Even with the 25 percent clause you’d at least break even.”
