NSSGA Welcomes Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation

ALEXANDRIA, VA- The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) President and CEO Michael Johnson issued the following statement regarding the advancement of the bipartisan infrastructure legislation in the Senate.

“NSSGA thanks the 67 senators who voted to moved forward with debate on the bipartisan infrastructure legislation. We praise the leadership of Senators Krysten Sinema (AZ), and Rob Portman (OH) along with the entire G-22 and their staffs that have worked, day and night to negotiate the details of this package that will deliver the infrastructure investment our nation desperately needs. We must also acknowledge the leadership of Senator Shelly Moore Capito (WV) and the Problem Solvers Caucus who took action earlier this year to advance proposals that helped deliver today’s results. 

“The final product we expect the Senate to approve in the coming days will provide transformative federal investment into our crumbling infrastructure network, grow our national economy and create millions of jobs throughout the country. This is a once in a generation infrastructure effort and NSSGA urges every Senator to support this legislation. 

“We now call upon the House to rapidly approve this important measure. Failure to act only prolongs our economic recovery and brings greater uncertainty to job creators as the expiration of our surface transportation programs draws near.”
