Ahead of the Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials Subcommittee’s July 9th Hearing entitled “An Examination of the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) In Use Locomotive Regulation” we write on behalf of the members of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) and California Construction and Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA), to express our concerns over the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) request for EPA authorization of its In-Use Locomotive Regulation. The CARB rule would ban most locomotives that are more than 23 years old starting in 2030.

Thank you for holding today’s hearing, “Cutting Competition in Contracting: The Administration’s Pricey Project Labor Agreement Mandate.” As you know, on Dec. 22, the Biden administration published a final rule, Federal Acquisition Regulation: Use of Project Labor Agreements for Federal Construction Projects, implementing President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14063, which requires federal construction contracts of $35 million or more to be subjected to anti-competitive and inflationary project labor agreements.

Coalition Letter to Congressional Leadership on a CRA Resolution to Disapprove EPA's NAAQS for Fine Particulate Matter

The undersigned associations represent thousands of members that generate trillions of dollars in economic activity and employ millions of workers across this country. We urge you to pass a Congressional Review Act resolution to disapprove the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recently finalized rule that unnecessarily tightened the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5), which will have an adverse impact on economic growth. Protecting our environment and improving public health are priorities for our members.

Coalition Letter to Sen. Tuberville and Rep. Davidson on Repealing Big Brother Overreach Act

The undersigned organizations, representing millions of small businesses, strongly support legislation to repeal the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). Your bill, appropriately entitled the Repealing Big Brother Overreach Act, would put an end to this poorly constructed and onerous reporting regime. The CTA was designed to help law enforcement prevent money laundering by requiring shell companies to report information regarding their beneficial owners (BOI) to the Department of the Treasury.
