Initiative seeks to require U.S. products

FRESNO, Calif.

The initiative has limited exceptions for some foreign materials, including spare parts for existing equipment, literature, artwork, and historical artifacts.

Proponents point to the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. They say the $7-billion repair project is being constructed in China, instead of here in the U.S. Proponents claim the measure will spur as many as 300,000 manufacturing jobs in California.
