Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA will host its next Quarterly DC Days on Wednesday, October 7, and we hope you consider participating. Please join your industry peers on Capitol Hill to advocate for swift passage of a long-term, fully funded highway bill before the current extension expires on October 29, a permanent ready mixed concrete Hours of Service 30-min break rule exemption, inclusion of a logbook exemption for ready mixed concrete drivers and resilient construction tax credit issues impacting the ready mixed concrete industry. Details for the event include the following:
Who: Members of NRMCA’s Government Affairs Committee and Board of Directors are invited to participate.
What: The committee's quarterly DC Days will be an opportunity to meet with your congressional members and staff to talk about issues of importance to our industry – specifically Hours of Service regulations, logbook exemption for ready mixed concrete drivers, passage of transportation bill and resilient construction.
When: Wednesday, October 7
Where: Washington, DC
Why: The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has yet to introduce a highway bill and the House Ways and Means Committee still needs to identify a funding mechanism. The October 7 NRMCA Quarterly DC Days is a prime time to help move this process along by educating key members of each committee for swift action on passing a highway bill. 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.
To RSVP, have questions or would like additional information, please e-mail Kerri Leininger at and Jill Landry at
