NSSGA Letter to Senate EPW Committee on Long-term Solvency of Highway Trust Fund

On behalf of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) and the aggregates industry we represent, we welcome today’s hearing titled Long-term Solvency of the Highway Trust Fund: Lessons Learned from the Surface Transportation System Funding Alternatives Program and Other User-based Revenue Solutions, and How Funding Uncertainty Affects the Highway Programs. As you well know, the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) is dependent on outdated and insufficient user fees, and absent proactive solutions and new revenue models, the HTF will be financially insolvent in the very near future.
