Even Republican State Lawmakers Block Offshoring

According to the National Foundation for American Policy’s Table Tracking State Global Sourcing Legislation, 140 state bills have been submitted to monitor or curtail some aspect of offshoring since 2003. Only 8 were submitted in 2003, but a whopping 132 bills followed in 2004. The trend doesn’t seem to be subsiding either.

Democrats sponsored most anti-offshoring bills in state legislatures but many had bipartisan sponsorship. However, Republicans in Viriginia, South Carolina, Missouri and Indiana introduced measures that are virtually no different than Democratic-sponsored bills. Here’s the list that Republicans have sponsored:

Virginia – House Bill 315 (prefiled January 9, 2004). Provides a 3 percent preference to any person with facilities in Virginia in awarding contracts over $500,000.

Virginia – House Bill 243 (prefiled January 8, 2004). Provides preference in procurement to U.S. based firms or corporations so long as “not more than 20 percent greater than the bid price of the low responsive and responsible foreign-based firm or corporation.” Companion to Senate Bill 151.

Tennessee – House Bill No. 3235 (introduced January 5, 2004). Prohibits state contract work from being performed overseas as well as state contracts with companies headquartered outside the U.S. Identical to SB2822.

South Carolina — House bill 4434 (filed on December 3, 2003). Virtually identical legislative text to North Carolina Senate bill 991. Prohibits state government contracts for telemarketing or call service centers with any company that does not perform the work in the U.S. and only with individuals authorized to be employed in the U.S. Also requires a call center operator to disclose the employee’s location upon request and written permission for call center to send a person’s financial, credit or other information to a foreign country. (this has 1 Democratic sponsor)

Missouri — Senate Bill 853 (prefiled on December 1, 2003). No state government contracts "where personal information regarding residents of the state who are not a party to the contract will be collected in performance of the contract, shall be made or maintained with any bidder who intends to or actually performs any part of the contract outside of the United States, either directly or indirectly through a subcontractor." Such personal information includes, but is not limited to, social security numbers, medical and financial information, date of birth and names of relatives.

Indiana — Senate Bill 4 (introduced November 18, 2003). The bill would permit work in service contracts with the state to be performed only by U.S. citizens or individuals authorized to work in the United States.
