Advocacy

NSSGA represents the interests of the aggregates industry proactively before Congress, the White House and the federal government's departments and agencies. It is the only association that fully represents the aggregates industry from extraction to sales.

Our issues

NSSGA’s Legislative Agenda highlights the priorities of the association. The association’s top priority is passage of a multi-year surface transportation infrastructure authorization. In addition, NSSGA focuses on the potential effects of environmental, labor and business issues, which can impose increased costs and regulatory burdens on the aggregates industry – the foundation of America’s built environment.

ROCKPAC

ROCKPAC is the only political action committee solely dedicated to advancing the aggregates industry’s priorities with federal candidates – standing up for the industry, expanding congressional awareness of it and the significant impacts of congressional actions on aggregates businesses.
