NSSGA Applauds Senate WRDA Passage
The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs Michele Stanley issued the following statement after the Senate passed the 2022 Water Resources Development Act. The House and Senate must now reconcile the two versions of the legislation that cleared their respective chambers. You can read NSSGA’s letter of support for the Senate WRDA bill here.
“The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2022 provides our members with planning certainty and funding for projects over the next two years. The critical resources authorized in this legislation will improve ports; develop flood control systems; reinforce shorelines; and maintain waterways for the movement of goods and resources. With the current economic climate, it is essential for all aggregates producers to have this guarantee with planning in order to supply the building materials needed to build these vital water infrastructure projects. NSSGA thanks Chairman Carper (DE), Ranking Member Capito (WV), Chairman Cardin (MD), Ranking Member Cramer (ND) and all the Senators who worked to move WRDA through the Senate. We look forward to Congress finishing its bipartisan work on this important bill.”
