We enjoy meeting with our members at these events, but we know
that there is work do in Washington,
D.C., throughout the year.
Advocacy remains Job No. 1 at
NSSGA and its going to be another
demanding year. First, it's an election year, which presents its own
challenges and opportunities. Our
primary legislative goal is securing
a long-term and sustainably-funded
surface transportation investment.

Chao has said that an infrastructure

SAND & GRAVEL REVIEW, January/February 2018

bill is still on the administration's
priority list, following efforts to
reform health care and the tax code
in 2017. President Trump has promoted temporary funding fixes such
as privatization, but it is expected
that the administration will offer
more in-depth and long-term funding options in the first part of the
year. Regardless of the administration's proposal, the dynamics
in Congress are such that it will
take a massive concerted effort to
move the needle on an immediate
and long-term solution to fix our
nation's highways, ports and airports, and NSSGA is ready to team
with various coalitions to help make
this case.
A new administrator at the Mine
Safety and Health Administration
(MSHA) will also bring changes to
the industry in 2018. NSSGA opened
discussions with David Zatezalo
and his team to push for a culture
of encouraging compliance. This
has wide-ranging implications for
both large and small operations.
Reopening the Small Mines office,
for example, will go a long way to
help thousands of small operations
receive guidance on compliance from
MSHA and help quarries proactively
manage for safety.
There are a whole host of regulatory issues that remain high priorities for NSSGA, ranging from the
ongoing effort to withdraw and
rewrite the EPA's Waters of the U.S.
(WOTUS) Rule, to minerals definitions and silica exposure.
Last year, hundreds of people
from operations in every corner of
our country came to Washington,
D.C., to make sure that Congress and
regulators understand our issues and
industry. Our inaugural Legislative
& Policy Forum/Fall Board Meeting
was a success, and we look forward
to seeing more of our members in the
nation's capital at our second annual
event in September. NSSGA makes
it easy for anyone in our industry
to get involved and engage your
elected officials.
Together we can-and will-
accomplish great things together. ■
