Ky. Lawmakers Want U.S. Flags Made In America

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - U.S. flags purchased by government agencies in Kentucky would have to be made in America under a measure that is barreling through the state legislature.

The bill has sailed through two legislative committees and the Senate without a single "no" vote. It now heads to the House floor where Speaker Greg Stumbo is predicting unanimous support.

Gov. Steve Beshear also supports the measure. Beshear spokesman
Jay Blanton said the governor plans to sign it into law when it arrives in his office.

Stumbo said the bill is one that lawmakers of diverse political idealogies can get behind.
