NSSGA, Lawmakers to Hold Press Conference


RR051019 NSSGAMay 10, 2019 – National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) Chairman Bob Weldon and members of the Highway Materials Group will join Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore)., and Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), for a press conference on Tuesday, May 14. The speakers and members of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee will call for increased and sustainable infrastructure funding and recognize National Infrastructure Week. 

“We need to make Congress aware that our country is facing a funding cliff if we do not find a long-term solution for the Trust Fund, which relies too heavily on a 26-year-old motor fuel user fee to pay for most of our infrastructure projects,” said Michele Stanley, NSSGA vice president of government and regulatory affairs. “Is anything worth the same now as it was over 25 years ago? There are so many of us that have a stake in a sustainable funding source, no matter if you produce aggregates in a quarry or pit, pour concrete, pave with asphalt or build our roads, highways or bridges with any of the necessary construction materials.”
