WASHINGTON — Capitol Hill lawmakers kept up the pressure on the U.S. Olympic Committee Tuesday as a bipartisan group of 59 House members sent a letter to the USOC, imploring it to ensure that Team USA’s uniforms are made in the U.S. in the future.
The group of lawmakers, led by Reps. Pete Stark (D., Calif.) and Mike Michaud (D., Maine), said in the letter to Scott Blackmun, chief executive officer of the USOC, they were “outraged” by the USOC’s outfitting of U.S. Olympic athletes in Chinese-made uniforms and called on the USOC to immediately adopt a policy to manufacture future uniforms in America. The letter was supported by the National Council of Textile Organizations and the AFL-CIO.
