Background Back to Top
On July 10, 2013, at 78 FR 41492, the FHWA published in the Federal Register a notice seeking comments regarding the continued need, in whole or in part, for the general waivers from Buy America for manufactured products; for ferry boat equipment; and for pig iron and processed, pelletized, and reduced iron ores. This notice also sought comment on the continuing need for the FHWA's minimal use threshold (currently established at $2,500 or 1/10 of 1 percent of the total contract value, whichever is greater). The original deadline for comments was August 8, 2013. In a letter dated July 23, 2013, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) submitted a comment to the docket for this notice requesting a 30-day extension to submit comments. This notice grants AASHTO's request and extends the deadline by 30 calendar days to September 8, 2013.
