NSSGA shows why so many advocate infrastructure

Advocating for aggregates involves so much more than promoting the crushed stone, sand and gravel produced by quarries every day, says the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association.

Michael W Johnson, president of the association interviewed on the Through the Noise podcast about how the association leads advocacy efforts for infrastructure investment in Washington, DC.

He highlights the ways that association member companies advocate for the industry and the broad array of industries also interested in showing the link between producing aggregates and improving our communities, infrastructure and economy.

“The foundation of my home is built with concrete that started with rocks from quarries in the area. This building, every school building, every hospital, every airport, every runway, every port, every road, every bridge… it’s aggregates,” Johnson said.

“Every dollar that we invest in our infrastructure creates three or four dollars in GDP growth. So when we talk to Congress, we’re not just talking about rocks, we’re talking about the need to have the Number One economy in the world. Making America great again starts by making our infrastructure and our economy great again.”
