Face to face with Capitol Hill lawmakers

This September, the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association invites everyone in the aggregates industry to meet face-to-face with their elected officials on Capitol Hill and educate them on the value of aggregates.

“It is really important to let lawmakers know the many ways that quarries have positive impacts in their communities, and there are quarries in just about every congressional district,” said Jim Riley, National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association’s senior director of government affairs.

“These operations employ local people, support families and contribute to the community in addition to providing the materials needed for every public works project.”

The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Associationwill help set up meetings with members of Congress for attendees of the second annual Safety and Health Committee Meetings and Advocacy Fly-In, Septemeber 12-14, in Washington, DC.

Riley said that association will also provide talking points for anyone meeting with their elected officials, so advocating for the industry is as easy as possible.

“There is nothing more impactful than a relationship with one’s member of Congress. They value the opinions of constituents above all else, and meeting with them in D.C. can help build a positive relationship,” Riley said.
