Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA encourages members and all ready mix industry employees to contact their House representative today to request he/she cosponsor HR 5177, the National Mitigation Investment Act. The bill provides a powerful incentive to states to build more resiliently ahead of disasters, offers a grant program to assist states in the enforcement of building codes and includes a study on disaster losses.

The federal disaster system is broken, and the federal government is wasting billions and billions of taxpayer dollars on post disaster response. HR 5177 will save lives and property by bringing forth much needed change to the way the federal government approaches resilience by providing states tools to adopt and enforce nationally recognized building codes. Hurricane season is well underway and it is critically important to garner support for legislation that focuses on stronger building codes and pre-disaster mitigation.
