A pair of aggregate industry leaders were present at the White House on Monday as President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA) into law.

Michael Johnson, president and CEO of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), attended the signing ceremony alongside Rogers Group president and CEO Darin Matson. Matson also serves NSSGA as board chairman.

“With President Biden’s signature affixed upon the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act, the most consequential infrastructure investment in our nation’s history is now law,” Johnson says. “NSSGA was proud to represent the aggregates industry at the White House for this historic event, as our advocacy efforts over the last six years [were] paramount in delivering today’s success.

“From modernizing energy delivery, improving water systems and updating roads, bridges and ports, the IIJA will address our critical infrastructure needs while helping the livelihoods of all Americans,” Johnson adds. “This is a pivotal moment for the aggregates industry, as key priorities are included in the bill, such as the ROCKS Act; reforms to permitting; long-term certainty and funding for surface transportation programs; and critical exemptions for our materials from burdensome, new sourcing requirements.”
