IT'S YOUR BUSINESS TO BE INVOLVED!
HELP ELECT CANDIDATES WHO SUPPORT OUR INDUSTRY.
Your voice matters as both a member of the aggregates industry and a taxpayer. You can influence the policies that will affect us long into the future. The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association's ROCKPAC is the only political action committee solely dedicated to advancing the aggregates industry's priorities with federal candidates - standing up for our industry, expanding Congressional awareness of it and the significant impacts of congressional actions and government regulation on our businesses.
WHO DOES ROCKPAC SUPPORT?
ROCKPAC supports pro-aggregates, pro-transportation, pro-business candidates on a bipartisan basis. Although this process tends to favor incumbent members of Congress, ROCKPAC finds other worthy candidates by studying their individual backgrounds and stated positions on the issues. You can play a significant role in bringing new candidates to our attention.
