Letter to House T&I and EPW Committee Leadership Supporting H.J. Res. 27, the CRA Resolution of Disapproval on the Biden administration's new WOTUS Rule

On behalf of the 400 members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), I am writing to share our strong support for H.J. Res. 27, the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution of disapproval on the Biden administration’s new Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule. NSSGA urges every member of Congress to support this measure, which will bring immediate and needed permitting certainty, as the aggregates industry works to deliver materials to build our infrastructure.   NSSGA is the voice of our nation’s aggregates industry, which operates over 9,000 operations and employs over 100,000 people in high-paying jobs to source 2.5 billion tons of aggregates each year that are critical to the supply chain and used to sustain our modern way of life and build our nation’s communities and infrastructure.   In recent testimony before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, NSSGA implored Congress to act to disapprove of the flawed and expanded rule. We thank Congressional leaders for answering our calls.
