NSSGA Welcomes Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework Deal
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) President and CEO Michael Johnson issued the following statement regarding the Biden administration’s announcement that a bipartisan deal has been reached with the Senate on an infrastructure framework.
“NSSGA welcomes today’s news that a bipartisan group of Senators and the Biden administration reached a critical breakthrough and agreed to a bipartisan infrastructure framework that will add close to $600 billion in new funding. This could be a transformational moment for our nation as it sets the path for robust investments to improve outdated and overused transportation systems and provides sustainable economic opportunities and high-earning jobs for millions of Americans.
“Clearly, more work is needed as Congress must fill in the legislative details and move the proposal through each chamber, including a reauthorization of our surface transportation programs that expire on September 30.
“NSSGA and our partners across the industry have been rallying for Congress to tackle our infrastructure challenges through a bipartisan consensus for years. We welcome today’s news as it puts us closer to achieving our shared goal. However, we will not let up on our advocacy until the President’s signature is affixed to the final bill.”
