Peter Morton Special to the Star WASHINGTON—Canadian companies hoping to bid on the crumbling road and bridge system in the U.S. may find themselves behind yet another Buy America law prohibiting them from bidding on any government-funded construction project if it has the smallest amount of federal funding.
“(If) at least one contract for a project receives any federal funding under this act, then all contracts for a project, regardless of their funding source, would be subject to Buy America preferences,” said Amgad Shehata, chair of the Washington-based Canadian American Business Council.
