FTC: Made In The USA Comments Concerning Jim Harris--P894219
Office of the Secretary
As a concerned citizen of the United States of America, I am against the proposal to change the 'Made in America' labeling guidelines, that will reduce the requirement for U.S.A. made content from 98% to 75%. 1 believe the requirement should be 100% content and assembly to qualify for the 'Made in America' label. Anything else is deceiving to the consumer, regardless of law or regulation.
I also do not agree with Beth Grossman, who thinks most Americans would accept a 70% U.S.A. made content providing the assembly was done in the U.S.A. She was presumptions, to say the least, in making that statment. That kind of rhetoric serves another agenda and not that of the American taxpayer.
I look for the 'Made in America' label. To me it is more than quality, it's patriotic, it supports the American worker, it's American, it's the right thing to do. The above proposal will render 'Made in America' meaningless.
Thank you for letting me share my views with you.
Mr. & Mrs. J. D. Harris, Jr.
