National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) members are lobbying on Capitol Hill Tuesday, with more than 100 meetings scheduled with members of Congress and their staffs.

NSSGA members gathered to lobby as part of the association’s Legislative & Policy Forum in Washington.

According to NSSGA, infrastructure investment is tops among the discussion points its members are lobbying for in Washington. The timing of the Legislative & Policy Forum happens to occur during the same week in which the House is scheduled to vote on the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act, the $1 trillion infrastructure bill that’s already passed the Senate.

“Our members are here in Washington in such strong numbers to make infrastructure investment a reality,” says Darin Matson, the president of Rogers Group who also serves as NSSGA board chair. “NSSGA and our members have made the case for infrastructure for years to see this become a reality, and we want to be sure Congress knows we must pass infrastructure investment now.”

Michael Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO, argues there is no better time than now to reinforce the need to pass infrastructure investment and push for the industry’s priorities in Congress.

“With these unique times, we appreciate everyone who is able to be with us in Washington for this significant week for our industry,” Johnson says.
