TALLAHASEE (CBSMiami/AP) - Florida's state agencies, cities, towns and villages will soon have to go "American."

Under a bill headed to Governor Rick Scott for signing, all Florida city, county and state government agencies must fly American flags that were made in the U.S.A.

The Senate passed the bill Wednesday on a 38-1 vote. The House passed the bill last month.

Democratic Sen. Jeff Clemens used debate on the bill to take a jab at the House, which adjourned three days early and let many significant bills die.

Clemens said it was a great bill because Americans work hard and would never quit and go home early.

The Senate remained in session and is passing bills already passed by the House, as well as some of their own, knowing they will die because the House can't take them up.
