Letter to Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee Opposing S. 1769, the “Rim of the Valley Corridor Preservation Act”

On behalf of the over 400 members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), I am writing to express our opposition to S. 1769, the “Rim of the Valley Corridor Preservation Act.” NSSGA represents aggregates producers and those who manufacture equipment and services that support the construction industry. As drafted, this legislation could severely impede future aggregate production in California, limiting critical building materials in Los Angeles County and the surrounding region.

On behalf of the over 400-members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), I am writing to express our opposition to H.R. 5805, the “Buffalo Tract Protection Act,” as it would permanently ban future aggregate production in areas of central New Mexico, severely limiting critical resources needed in the construction of infrastructure and public works projects for this growing region. 


Open Letter to President Biden Regarding 5 Immediate Supply Chain Solutions

We, the undersigned coalition of associations, representing agriculture, foodservice, trucking, warehousing, manufacturing, retail, construction, energy, and other key supply chain stakeholders, call on the Biden Administration to work with our industries to address the immense challenges impacting our nation’s supply chain. While we represent different industries, we share the common burden of current supply chain disruptions, which are driving up prices and leading to a growing shortage of goods in the United States, with the holidays just around the corner.

Opposing Pilot Program on Increased Use of Mass Timber in Military Construction

We have significant concerns with policies and programs that tend to promote specific building materials. Engineers and construction professionals should make decisions about which materials to use to meet the codes, standards and specifications of the project. It is inappropriate for Congress to stack the deck for or against specific building materials: Congress should not pick winners and losers and should not promote policies or programs that prefer one building material over another. Mass timber is often promoted as a sustainable building material.
