NSSGA Attends White House Signing of Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) President and CEO Michael Johnson issued the following statement as he attended the signing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) at the White House this afternoon.
“With President Biden’s signature affixed upon the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), the most consequential infrastructure investment in our nation’s history is now law. NSSGA was proud to represent the aggregates industry at the White House for this historic event, as our advocacy efforts over the last six years were paramount in delivering today’s success. From modernizing energy delivery, improving water systems and updating roads, bridges, and ports; the IIJA will address our critical infrastructure needs while helping the livelihoods of all Americans. This is a pivotal moment for the aggregates industry as key priorities are included in the bill, such as the ROCKS Act; reforms to permitting; long-term certainty and funding for surface transportation programs; and critical exemptions for our materials from burdensome, new sourcing requirements. NSSGA praises the leadership of the members of Congress who worked to draft and advance this bipartisan achievement, along with the Administration. More importantly, today’s result is a testament that practical lawmakers, on both sides of the aisle, can overcome political fighting and work together to deliver results that will better their constituents' lives and put our nation on a path of economic success.”
