Bill requires American-made flags
ST. PAUL -- Rep. Tom Rukavina walked through the crowd during a Sept. 11, 2001, memorial service and noticed most of the flags were made in China, Pakistan or someplace else other than the United States.
"If anything should be made in the United States, it should be the American flag," he said.
So began the Virginia, Minn., Democrat's quest to require all American flags sold in Minnesota to be made in this country. And 2007 could be the year he wins.
