Prime Minister Stephen Harper plans to lobby the U.S. over protectionist legislation which calls for a "Buy America" policy as the country prepares for a series of sweeping infrastructure projects.

The U.S. bill, which Congress appended Wednesday onto President Barack Obama's US$819 billion stimulus plan, has sparked fears that Canada's steel exports could be shut out of the U.S. recovery plan.
