Stone, Sand and Gravel REVIEW - January/February 2018 - 11

Passing of
Industry
Veteran

Craig Campbell (1965 - 2017)
CRAIG CAMPBELL, LafargeHolcim vice president of environment and public affairs, passed
away peacefully in October
2017.  Campbell oversaw environmental compliance for all
U.S. cement operations and the
company's government affairs
activities at the federal state
and local levels. 
"We were sad to hear of Craig's
passing as he was always a valuable resource, an active participant and a stalwart supporter
of our industry," said Michael
W. Johnson, NSSGA president
and CEO. "Craig will be missed."
In his 20 years with
LafargeHolcim, Campbell demonstrated a deep commitment
to protecting the environment,
sustainability and impacting policy.  Campbell was also
actively involved in both NSSGA
and other industry trade associations, including as a board
member of the Portland Cement
Association. He is survived by
his wife Jennifer and their two
children, Benjamin Craig and
Lily Anne.

Congress Reforms the Tax Code
CONGRESS PASSED THE
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on
Dec. 20, 2017.
Members of Congress
passed a final version
of the bill after initial
approvals and edits on
Dec. 19. The package
includes a corporate tax
rate of 21 percent starting
in 2018, a repeal of alternative minimum tax for
corporations and doubles
the exemption levels for

the estate tax.
"We welcome the pas- Reform bill by visiting www.nssga.org
sage of this bill, the first
meaningful tax reform effort in many years. Hopefully, this bill lays the
necessary groundwork for Congress to give its full attention to infrastructure
investment in the first part of 2018," said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO.
NSSGA was very active in ensuring the tax-exempt status of private activity bonds stayed intact for state and local infrastructure projects by talking
directly with members of Congress and sending letters to conferees. The final
package also keeps whole percentage depletion, the LIFO accounting method
and Like-Kind Exchanges for real estate.
As of Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW's print deadline, Congress continued to
address the impending deadline to fund the federal government. Lawmakers
are discussing allocating $1.4 billion to address all current damages to federal
highways as part of an $81 billion spending package for hurricane and wildfire
relief efforts in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Congress
previously prevented a government shutdown by clearing a short-term continuing resolution that extended current spending levels through Jan. 19, 2018.  
This month, Congress is expected to look at a long-term bill with higher
budget caps so that appropriators can allow the federal government to spend
the $1 billion for highways, bridges and airports called for in the FAST Act. In
these changes to government spending for FY2018, NSSGA is also supporting
an increase to the cap for Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) from $4.50 to $8.50.

NSSGA Receives Marketing Honors
NSSGA RECEIVED THREE Gold MarCom Awards from the
Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals.
The May/June 2016 edition of Stone, Sand & Gravel
REVIEW was recognized for outstanding print creativity.
A video with members of the House Transportation &
Infrastructure Committee highlighting the importance of
advocating for the industry in person on Capitol Hill was
recognized for digital marketing. Finally, a flyer for the
NSSGA Young Leaders 25th Anniversary Meeting, featuring photos from 25 years of Young Leaders activities, was
awarded for print creativity.
