National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) President and CEO Michael W. Johnson urged Congress to rethink a proposed 22 percent cut to federal transportation projects contained in a recently passed federal spending blueprint. While Johnson acknowledged that the budget resolution passed May 5 is, fortunately, only a non-binding outline for federal spending, he pointed out that the proposed cuts would further degrade “a system already in crisis” and would harm the U.S. economy.
