NSSGA Statement on House Extension of Surface Transportation Programs
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs Michele Stanley issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted to extend the surface transportation systems.
“We are once again extremely disappointed that politics in the House continues to hold hostage a bipartisan infrastructure bill that the American people are yearning for and our nation desperately needs. We call on all members of the House to put their petty differences aside and vote on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The infrastructure bill cleared the Senate almost three months ago with 69 bipartisan votes, and the question today is not whether votes can be secured to support IIJA, rather what can some members of Congress get in return for their vote before casting it. The infrastructure bill could pass today if House members voted their convictions rather than their politics. NSSGA will not stop advocating for the House to pass the IIJA before we are faced with another dire deadline that damages our economy and the livelihoods of Americans.”
