Letter to the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on the Water Resources and Development Act of 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 supports 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.
