TAKE FIVE message about the importance of transportation infrastructure to their success will be impossible for those in Washington to ignore. There is a path forward, and, working together, NSSGA will put aggregates first and be that one voice, powerful and effective, for the industry.

Additional information can be obtained at The goal for NSSGA, working with our allies in the construction materials industry and broader infrastructure coalition partners, is to foster an environment in which reauthorization of the surface transportation law and a long-term, stable funding solution are viewed universally as matters of high national importance. To accomplish that, we will need to work with non-traditional allies to deliver a message from the grassroots up that transportation infrastructure in not only the backbone of our national economy, but also the Main Street economy. You cannot have the number one economy in the world with the 23rd rated infrastructure, and you cannot run a successful business and create jobs on Main Street if it takes too long and costs too much for your customers to get to you. Q. How can individual aggregate operators help spur transportation reauthorization? There are a couple of ways for individual aggregate producers to really make a difference. The first is to support NSSGA with both membership dues and contributions to ROCKPAC. Doing so will help the association be well positioned and equipped to be the most effective advocate for the aggregates industry. For our current members, renew for 2014 and grow your support for ROCKPAC. For those companies who are not current members, join us so that we can fight more effectively for you. The second thing that individual companies can do is to make the most of an invaluable and irreplaceable strength they already have. There are aggregates companies doing business in every congressional district across this country. Aggregates producers and the manufacturers and service providers who support them are strongly rooted, respected members of the communities in which they are based. The jobs they provide are key to local economies from coast to coast. Leveraging that and engaging other businesses in delivering a A.
