HMG Urges House Passage of IIJA

The Highway Materials Group (HMG) thanks you for your leadership and urges immediate passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) – H.R. 3684 – before the current one-year extension of the FAST Act expires on September 30th. We are appreciative of the robust levels IIJA provides our surface transportation network and the countless improvements it will provide our dilapidated infrastructure network. We welcome the funding levels provided by IIJA, including $109 billion in new spending on our surface transportation network, $16 billion for ports and waterway improvements, $55 billion for water infrastructure and other critical infrastructure improvements. The HMG supports key bipartisan and pragmatic polices included in IIJA that will ensure our members are able to efficiently address our infrastructure needs.
