NSSGA Urges The Passage of The 2020 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) Reauthorization Bill

The 400-member companies NSSGA represents, and the industries who support our aggregate materials, welcome the bi-partisan negotiations that have resulted in the continuation of a two-year reauthorization of critical waterway infrastructure projects. Among other achievements, the package agreed upon sets aside historic levels of Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) chief’s reports and feasibility studies, includes Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund (HMTF) provisions that maintain funds are used for appropriate projects, and WRDA 2020 will upgrade various ports and increase dredging levels throughout the country to improve waterway traffic.
