NSSGA, along with 32 other organisations, called on both presidential candidates to remain committed to their infrastructure plans and find long-term, dedicated and sustainable revenue sources to pay for much-needed improvements to America’s crumbling infrastructure.

NSSGA and groups representing business, labour, transportation and travel industries groups reiterated their commitment to help either candidate to formulate and implement their infrastructure agenda, highlighting ways to pay to improve and maintain the nation’s transportation infrastructure that would help boost employment levels and economic growth.

“We are ready to work with either candidate to create or support initiatives that properly invest in our country’s failing infrastructure,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “Rocks really do build America. Our members’ products make every road, highway and bridge in America, as well as our homes, cities, ports, airports and public works projects.”

“When our commutes are not clogged with traffic, we can spend more time with our families and friends. When we invest in airports, ports and surface transportation, we create jobs and America does more business. That is why we say that when the aggregates industry is doing well, America is doing well,” Johnson said.
