Doubly American

Rep. DeFazio (D., OR) has introduced the American Jobs in American Forests Act of 2013. Though Congress cannot legislate for any other country's jobs, or forests, for that matter, Rep. DeFazio obviously decided to emphasize the patriotic aspects of his legislation in the bill's short title. The long title of the bill notes that it is an Act to "increase the employment of Americans by requiring State workforce agencies to certify that employers are actively recruiting Americans and that Americans are not qualified or available to fill the positions that the employer wants to fill with H-2B nonimmigrants."
