Letter to House T&I Committee on New Clean Water Act Permitting Bills

On behalf of the 450 members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), we write to express our strong support for the recently introduced bills aimed at enhancing the efficiency and clarity of the Clean Water Act (CWA) permitting processes. 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. This industry procures 2.5 billion tons of aggregates annually, which are crucial in sustaining our lifestyle and constructing our nation's infrastructure and communities. The products sourced by this industry are fundamental components required for building roads, airports, transit, rail, ports, clean water and energy networks.
