Letter to Senate EPW Supporting Shailen Bhatt to Lead the FHWA

On behalf of the 400 members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), I am writing to share our support for Shailen Bhatt’s nomination to lead the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The work of this committee over the past years to craft and advance responsible surface transportation reauthorizations, which were incorporated as the base of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), has given FHWA a historic opportunity to improve our infrastructure that betters the lives of every American. With $383 billion in new contract authority and hundreds of billions in additional investments across dozens of new and existing programs, FHWA has an essential role in executing the IIJA investments that will modernize our transportation systems to eliminate congestion, improve the flow of goods that sustain our nation and every community.
