NSSGA Urges House Passage of IIJA

On behalf of the 400 members of the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) I am writing to share our strong support for H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), recently passed by the Senate with bipartisan support and urge its passage through the House as quickly as possible. IIJA is a historic, robust bipartisan infrastructure bill that will significantly enhance our crumbling infrastructure network, improve our national economy and global competitiveness, and provide hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs throughout the country. We urge you to pass IIJA before September 30th, as the current one year extension of the FAST Act expires at the end of this fiscal year and the construction industry needs this federal funding certainty for FY22 and beyond.
