STAND WITH AMERICAN FARMERS

Join Certified American Grown and rally for America's flower and foliage farmers by sharing your voice.

Add your name to our growing list of supporters of the American Grown Act (H. R. 3019).

What is the American Grown Act?

H.R. 3019, referred to as the "American Grown Act," is a bill that has been introduced by Alaska Congressman Don Young (R-AK), a member of the Congressional Cut Flowers Caucus to support America's flower farming families and would require the federal government to purchase American Grown cut flowers and foliage for their facilities, events, etc. The legislation includes bill sponsor support from all six co-chairs of the bipartisan Congressional Cut Flower Caucus: Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Rep. Salud Carbjal (D-CA), Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA), Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME) and Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL).

 

Why is this important?

It is the right thing to do. After decades of duty free access and direct subsidies to foreign flower producers in competing countries while continuing to increase the costs and regulations on our domestic farms, America's flower and foliage farmers continue to face an extremely unfair playing field here at home. "Free trade" has not been "fair trade." Therefore, the American Grown Act is a small gesture that will bring a tremendous amount of awareness to lawmakers on the the issues that continue to face these hard-working flower and greens farming families. By passing the American Grown Act, you can help ensure that American tax dollars go to buying American Grown Flowers and Foliage!

"As a designer, not only am I aware of where the flowers I buy come from but I make a conscious decision to support our economy here at home. I would encourage that the federal government do the same and buy American Grown Flowers to support America’s flower farming families as designers like myself do every day in our businesses."

Kelly Shore | Floral Designer, Petals By the Shore

"Bristol Farms supports and applauds all the efforts and dedication our American Farmers put forth into growing the most amazing flowers that we can offer to our customers!!"

Kristin Lares | Bristol Farms, Los Angeles, CA

"American Grown Flowers help put funds back into the economy. When we purchase flowers from out of the country, we are inhibiting the growth of companies that support families here on American soil. By supporting American Grown Flowers we continue to support the well being of not only our friends and neighbors, but the strength of our country being self-reliant."

Kasey Thorton | United Salad Company, Portland, OR

“I believe it is important for our federal government to support American industries first, and that includes America’s flower and greens farmers.”

Faith Ostrye | Musician, Millbrook, AL

FAQ

Will this restrict trade with other countries?

No. The American Grown Act will not impact the flow of trade or restrict consumer choice. It only focuses the requirement to buy American on the federal government.

Are there similar "buy American" provisions for other products?

Yes! The legislative path for "buy American first" proposals is well worn. In fact, it was President Hoover that signed the "Buy American Act," into law in 1933, requiring the U.S. government to give purchasing preference for products that were made in the U.S.A. Today, many other industries have benefited from these types of laws and regulations that require the federal government to buy American first. The American Grown Act is needed to bring that kind of attention and awareness for purchase of flowers and foliage.

Will this have a negative impact on the floral industry?

No. The American Grown Act will not impact the flow of trade or restrict consumer choice. It only focuses the requirement to buy American on the federal government.

Does the federal government spend a lot of money on flowers now?

No.  The amount of money that the federal government spends on flowers is so small that nobody really knows how small it is. The American Grown Act isn't about money, it is about supporting America's flower and foliage farmers and ensuring that American taxpayer dollars go to buying American Grown!
