On July 8, 2020, Congresswoman B. Maloney (NY-12) joined members of New York City's fashion industry to unveil her proposed legislation, the Made in America: Preparation for a Pandemic Act. The proposed legislation would require that the Strategic National Stockpile maintain at least enough PPE to sustain the U.S. through a year of a global pandemic. It would require 25% of that PPE to be produced in the U.S. to strengthen the U.S. domestic supply chains and ensuring Americans have the tools to manufacture lifesaving supplies when needed. It would create a tax credit to assist manufacturers with the costs of developing or expanding domestic sources for production of PPE goods within the US.
