LAS VEGAS, NEV., March 6 – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association today announced a bold, new strategic plan for the aggregates industry. Released at NSSGA’s Annual Convention, Rocks Build America sets a new course for the organization to lead the policy debate on rebuilding America’s rapidly deteriorating transportation infrastructure.
said Paul I. Detwiler III, NSSGA chairman and New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc.’s president and CEO.
“It’s no secret that the nation’s roads and bridges are crumbling while other nation’s race past America to build a 21st century infrastructure. This plan charts the course for our industry to engage in solving this national crisis,” Detwiler said. “NSSGA members have a long, strong history for delivering the materials that built America. Now, we are positioned to protect our transportation national asset that drives growth, jobs, mobility, trade and global competitiveness.”
said C. Howard Nye, 2013-2014 NSSGA Chairman and president and CEO, Martin Marietta Materials.
As NSSGA’s past chairman, Nye led the strategic planning process.
“We crafted Rocks Build America to tackle the critical issues facing our industry today. For example, the Highway Trust Fund is on the verge of bankruptcy, yet policy gridlock is hampering American business and competitiveness. This is unacceptable. Our industry is on course to find common sense solutions.”
said Michael Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “Our member companies deliver the products that are the backbone of the nation’s transportation infrastructure. We stand ready to rebuild, renew and refortify America, but we need smart investments and commitment from policymakers. And, we must be able to rebuild infrastructure in a way that allows our members to operate without unreasonable regulation that strangles businesses.”
