The Berry Amendment requires the Department of Defense to use its funds to procure domestically produced clothing, fabrics, and other items. This Amendment is named after Ellis Yarbal Berry (a member of the House of Representatives from 1951-1971) who introduced an amendment to the Buy American Act to expand the law to include all clothing, cotton, and wool. Congress passed later related amendments (referred to as Berry Amendments) with the goal of protecting the US industry by encouraging purchases of US made and sourced products over those made and sourced in foreign countries.
