NSSGA Opposes The Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act

NSSGA strongly opposes H.R. 1373 as it would permanently ban aggregate production on millions of acres of land. Such a ban would severely diminish the ability for communities to access key resources that are necessary for building roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, homes and businesses. Allowing this ban to proceed would have a significant impact on the cost of public works projects due to the necessity for stone, sand and gravel required to develop and repair infrastructure and buildings to be imported into the area.
