NRMCA Quarterly DC Days, Transportation Construction Coalition Fly-In Set for May
NRMCA encourages you to join our industry allies for its second quarter DC Day for 2016 on Wednesday, May 11. Working from the victories NRMCA scored in the FAST Act and year-end spending package for the ready mixed concrete industry, we will advocate for the inclusion of appropriations language dedicated to advancing industry initiatives for resilient construction and to further clarify the FMCSA Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the Carrier Safety Fitness Determination. Additionally, we will advocate for a legislative fix to the Hours of Service language for the 34-hour restart which was omitted by error in last year’s bill. Face-to-face advocacy clearly pays off and is the best way to help lawmakers understand our industry and the impact their decisions have on your operations in their state. You are the 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. The legislative successes NRMCA and our association volunteers scored in the FAST Act on behalf of the industry were proof of that!
Please also join NRMCA for the Transportation Construction Coalition’s (TCC) 2016 Legislative Fly-in on Capitol Hill May 10 - 11 and make the case to fix the Highway Trust Fund. Join hundreds of other industry leaders in delivering our message to Members of Congress to thank them for passage of the five-year "Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, but most importantly to tell them that the job is not done yet. Congress passed the FAST Act last year which included several funding patches for the bill; however, it did not address the revenue shortfall that the Highway Trust Fund continues to face.
The registration fee of $175 includes conference materials, legislative briefings, continental breakfast and a Capitol Hill reception. Any cancellation fees after April 28 will be non-refundable.
