Aggregates advocacy event scheduled for September

By |  July 18, 2016

The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) plans to set up meetings Sept. 12-14 with members of Congress for attendees of the second annual Safety and Health Committee Meetings and Advocacy Fly-In in Washington, D.C.

According to NSSGA, everyone in the aggregates industry is invited to meet with their elected officials on Capitol Hill and educate them about the value of aggregates.

“It is really important to let lawmakers know the many ways quarries have positive impacts in their communities, and there are quarries in just about every congressional district,” says Jim Riley, NSSGA senior director of government affairs. “These operations employ local people, support families and contribute to the community in addition to providing the materials needed for every public works project.”

Registration is available for this event online. NSSGA adds that it can help attendees set up meetings with lawmakers.
