Coalition Comments on EPA's Reconsideration of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Particulate Matter
We represent construction materials vital to our nation’s infrastructure and are providing comments regarding the proposal by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Reconsideration of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Particulate Matter (PM). Our organizations represent hundreds of thousands of employees across the country and include the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA), and the Portland Cement Association (PCA) (associations). Our members are committed stewards of the environment. As supporters of the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA), we are concerned that this reconsideration of the PM standards will undermine this Administration’s infrastructure priorities.
