Letter to Congress on the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2024

On behalf of the over 450 Members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), we write in strong support of The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2024. We applaud your efforts to craft this bill in a bipartisan, bicameral manner, and look forward to its swift passage. NSSGA represents the aggregates and industrial sand industry of our country, with over 9,000 facilities and more than 100,000 employees in high-paying jobs. The aggregates industry produces 100 percent of the material for the airfield pavement foundations; 95 percent of the raw material in asphalt concrete overlays; and 70-85 percent of the cement concrete overlays, making aggregates the number one material used in our aviation infrastructure. As this critical legislation crosses the finish line, our members will waste no time in working alongside the FAA in supplying the raw materials needed to enhance our nation’s runways.
