Alexandria, VA – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs Michele Stanley issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the 2022 Water Resources Development Act.
“The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2022 affects every community, as it provides a roadmap for upgrading and modernizing our water resources infrastructure. Specifically for our members in the aggregates industry, it provides planning certainty and funding for projects over the next two-years. This is critical, as aggregate producers supply the building materials needed to complete the important projects outlined in the bill. These include the improvement of ports; development of flood control systems; reinforcement of our shorelines; and maintaining our waterways for the movement of goods and resources.
“Additionally, the House of Representatives passing the 2022 WRDA reauthorization, by a vote of 384-37, continues the tradition of bipartisan support for this vital infrastructure bill. NSSGA thanks the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chairman DeFazio (OR) and Ranking Member Graves (MO) for their work to move WRDA through Committee and the full House of Representatives. We look forward to the Senate taking up their version of WRDA, which received unanimous support in the Environment and Public Works Committee, to ensure our water infrastructure receives necessary funding in a timely manner.”
