Members of the Texas Aggregates & Concrete Association (TACA) met with Texas legislators to discuss pressing issues in the aggregate, concrete and cement industries during the association’s Capitol Day.

“TACA’s Capitol Day is a great opportunity for legislators and their staffs to connect with our members who supply the essential materials Texas needs to support its unprecedented population growth,” says Josh Leftwich, TACA president and CEO. “For example, many might be surprised to know that every year, nearly nine tons of stone, sand, gravel and cement are required for every Texas resident.”

According to TACA, Capitol Day included a legislative breakfast and featured remarks by state Rep. Kyle Kacal (House District 12). Individual meetings took place between more than 40 TACA members and 70 Texas legislators and their staffers.

Increased demand for new construction and infrastructure in Texas is anticipated due to an estimated population growth of 1,000 to 1,400 residents per day, TACA says.
