Take Action: Urge Congress to Support DoTs


RR050720 ActionMarch 7, 2020 – The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) is urging aggregates producers to support their state Department of Transportation (DoT). Without Federal assistance, state DoTs are vulnerable to disruption due to lack of funding resources. As our nation continues to adjust to the compounding impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is imperative that state DoTs receive federal relief in response to significant revenue shortfalls that will impact the immediate implementation of highway and bridge projects across the country, NSSGA stated. Any interruption to state DoT execution of funds for current and future public works directly impacts the construction industry and those that produce the essential building materials necessary for such projects. The current average revenue loss for such projects is 30%. Please contact your member of Congress and ask for this federal backstop, so state DoTs can continue operations, keeping engineers and planners employed to continue surface infrastructure projects for the next 18 months.
