NSSGA Statement Lauding Actions to Promote Sustainability of Transportation Funding

Alexandria, VA – National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association President & CEO Michael Johnson issued the following statement on actions to promote sustainability of transportation funding.  


“We applaud the leadership of Chairman Tom Carper (DE) and Chairman Sam Graves (MO-6) for urging the formation of the Federal System Funding Alternative Advisory Board. This advisory board, authorized in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), carries the crucial responsibility of establishing sustainable funding alternatives for the Highway Trust Fund.


“Certainty is key to driving progress in the infrastructure sector.  That is why we are delighted to have collaborated with industry partners and the ENO Center for Transportation to present a groundbreaking report, "Driving Change: Advice for the National VMT-Fee Pilot." This report, unveiled today, provides clear and insightful recommendations for implementing an efficient VMT-fee pilot. We are confident that these recommendations will pave the way for a more robust and sustainable future for infrastructure funding.


“NSSGA members play a vital role in maintaining and modernizing our infrastructure, producing billions of tons of essential materials used in every road bridge tunnel and transportation project. The actions taken by Chairman Carper and Chairman Graves, along with the recommendations outlined by the trusted ENO Center are critical to placing our nation’s infrastructure on a strong footing.”
