The NSSGA has announced the industry’s support for the Partnership for America’s Economic Expressway.
“Our major highway network is woefully under performing. It is outdated, overused, underfunded,” the group says on it’s website. “We are once again called not simply to rebuild what once was, but to envision and create the highway network of tomorrow.”
Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO, said that aggregates operations are glad to support an advocacy initiative that is focused on improving America’s infrastructure. Studies show that every dollar invested in infrastructure yields US$6 of economic activity.
“Investing in our roads, highways, bridges as well as ports and airports creates jobs and gives American companies efficient means to do business,” Johnson said. “We say that when the aggregates industry is doing well, America is doing well. That’s because the materials produced from our quarries build and improve on our infrastructure.”
