State lawmaker from Melbourne wants flags to be made in America

FLORIDA —

Making sure American and state flags flown in Florida are made in the U.S. is a priority for a state representative from Melbourne.

The all-American flag Act filed by Rep. Ritch Workman requires any flag purchased by the state, a county or a municipality to be made in the U.S. if it's going to be for public use.

Also, the flag would have to be made with materials that are also grown, produced or manufactured in the U.S.
