Letter to Congressional Leadership Supporting WRDA 2022
On behalf of the over 400 members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), I am writing to express our support for the Water Resources and Development Act of 2022. NSSGA would like to applaud Congress in their efforts to include the crucial WRDA language in this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA); as this piece of legislation will support efforts to improve and invest in all levels of our nation’s infrastructure network, including critical navigable waterways that are essential to America’s economic competitiveness. We appreciate the committee working together to put forward a bipartisan reauthorization of the Water Resources Development Act. The enactment of this two-year legislation will provide $40 billion in federal investments to build critical water infrastructure projects across the nation that will improve our supply chains, mitigate flooding and better our communities. The WRDA authorization is a responsible bill, which provides aggregates producers from around the country the certainty needed to supply the worthwhile projects funded by this legislation.
