TALLAHASSEE, FL. (WTXL) - The "All American Flag Act" cleared a House Panel on Monday.

The Bill would require U.S. and Florida flags purchased by governments in Florida after January 1st to be made from materials grown, manufactured and produced in the U.S.

The Bill was introduced by Representative Bob Cortes, a Republican from Altamonte Springs, and passed unanimously.

A similar measure was considered in 2012 after the Los Angeles Times reported that there were $3.6 million in U.S. flags imported into the United States, most from China.
