Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA will host its third in a series of "DC Days" on Wednesday, June 17 and/or Thursday, June 18.  Please join your industry peers on Capitol Hill to advocate for swift passage of a long-term, fully funded highway bill this year, a permanent ready mixed concrete Hours of Service 30-minute break rule exemption and resilient construction tax credit issues impacting the ready mixed concrete industry. Details follow:

Who: Members of NRMCA’s Government Affairs Committee and Board of Directors and any association members are invited to participate. 

What: The third of the committee's quarterly "DC Days" will be an opportunity to meet with your congressional members and their staffs to talk about issues of importance to our industry. This quarter's DC day will focus specifically on educating key members of the new 114th Congress about FMCSA's Hours of Service regulations and how Congress can fix them; passage of a long-term, fully funded transportation bill and resilient construction. 

When: Wednesday, June 17 and/or Thursday, June 18 (you may select one or both days for Hill visits)

Where: Washington, DC 

Why: Congress will pass this week a short-term extension of transportation funding through July 31. The June DC Days will be a good time to meet with members to discuss passage of a long-term, fully funded transportation bill and making sure that NRMCA’s priorities are included. Face-to-face advocacy is the best way to help lawmakers understand our industry and the impact of their decisions on businesses in their state. You are your best advocate for your business. Taking the time to educate decision makers can help ensure that fixes to issues result in positive outcomes for the entire ready mixed concrete industry.
