Letter to House Committee on Natural Resources Sharing Concerns with H.R. 2794, the Boundary Waters Wilderness Protection and Pollution Prevention Act
On behalf of the over 400-members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), I am writing to share our concern with H.R. 2794, the Boundary Waters Wilderness Protection and Pollution Prevention Act. This legislation would add unnecessary restrictions to mining activities over a large area of Northern Minnesota, impacting the ability to develop critical infrastructure and putting a crucial economic sector at risk that supplies high-paying jobs across rural communities.
