National Ready Mixed Concrete Association

Last Friday, NRMCA President Robert Garbini (shown at far left here along with other industry executives) testified before the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in opposition to the agency’s proposed new standard for respirable crystalline silica. During his testimony, Garbini stated that OSHA was basing the perceived necessity for a new standard on faulty information and on assumptions that run counter to current data that show a clear decline in silicosis cases. Garbini also laid out exactly how OSHA failed to understand and characterize the ready mixed concrete industry.

Garbini asked the question, "Since OSHA has clearly not done its homework, how is this proposal not premature?" He concluded his comments by stating that, "NRMCA and the concrete industry support maintaining a silica standard to protect American workers; however, a change from the current standard, PEL, and added action level are unwarranted and indefensible, as proven by current data and industry’s adherence to the current regulations." Garbini’s testimony is in addition to numerous prior comments NRMCA has submitted to OSHA on the issue, and ongoing legislative efforts before Congress.

OSHA’s proposal to overhaul the current permissible exposure limits (PELs) for respirable crystalline silica would:
• Reduce the PEL from 100 micrograms per cubic meter of air (μg/m3), as an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA), down to just 50 μg/m3, 8-hour TWA;
• Require measuring of silica that workers can be exposed to if it is at or above 25 μg/m3, 8-hour TWA;
• Limit worker access to areas where the PEL is above 50 μg/m3, 8-hour TWA;
• Require dust controls to reduce worker exposure to limits above the new PEL;
• Direct employers to provide respirators to workers when dust controls cannot reduce worker exposure to limits above the new PEL;
• Mandate medical exams every three years for workers who are exposed to limits for 30 or more days a year above the new PEL;
• Require new worker training; and
• Require new recordkeeping requirements.

NRMCA Contractor member Swederski Concrete Construction Inc. will pave two parking lots for Allied Plastics this year and will include a message (seen here) about the environmentally friendly qualities of concrete on its job site signs, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Jon Hansen.

"One of the projects is next to a wetlands area, so we decided to bring awareness that concrete water runoff contains no pollutants," said Joe Swederski, vice president of Swederski Concrete Construction Inc. in Spring Grove, IL. "Site signs always are an opportunity to promote your company, as this one does. But adding the element of thanking the customer for making a decision to protect the environment with their material choice sends a strong message to the public and builds a lot of goodwill for the client."

It is that time of year, again - Pothole Season. Every year at this time, we hear motorists complaining about the deteriorating conditions of their streets and roads. And every year, we hear the DOT's and other public officials lamenting how they are doing everything they can to try to fix the problem, but how limited they are in funding. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, this year the City of Chicago has already patched over 250,000 potholes (that’s up about 100,000 over last year), spending 1/3 of its annual $9.2 million pothole budget. Last year, Michigan spent about $8.8 million on pothole repair. This year, the estimates are somewhere between $13 million to $18 million! The toll that potholes extol is not just on roadway budgets. The Independent Insurance Agents of America (IIAA) estimates that about 500,000 auto insurance claims are filed annually, resulting in payouts of nearly 4.8 billion (that’s billion with a "b") dollars!

"The problems caused by potholes are evident," says NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Phil Kresge. "As an industry, we have a responsibility to inform the public and transportation officials that concrete is the solution to their potholes woes. The negative financial impact from potholes can be significantly reduced over time if a Balanced Paving Program is adopted - just one of the benefits of rigid pavements compared to flexible. We should also point out that concrete overlays of asphalt roads are an efficient approach where the road problems go beyond just random potholes." 

As reported in last week’s E-NEWS, NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Doug O’Neill recently attended a Town Board meeting in Western New York with a local NRMCA Producer member that was proposing a concrete fix to the severe deterioration of a local roadway. O’Neill reported that it was quite clear that the attendees at these meetings, both the residents and the Board members, know nothing about concrete and have the same pre-conceived notions about concrete. But he also noted that are they willing to listen, since their problems are reaching critical mass.

To take advantage of this situation, NRMCA advises our State Affiliates and members to reach out to every Town/City/Village Board and offer up "Concrete" Solutions to their pothole problems. Additionally, NRMCA members should reach out within their own towns to get an audience with these boards. Also, promoters should follow up with local reporters, based on their coverage of pothole problems and to bring the issue to the attention of agency and elected officials where SLR advocacy is being considered or is underway.

More than 200 legislators, staff and government officials attended the Tennessee Concrete Industry’s sixth annual "Day on the Hill" in Nashville on April 1. This cooperative government relations effort between Tennessee ready mix, cement, paving, pipe and precast associations is making strides with the decision-makers in state government. The day began with 20 industry representatives making scheduled small-group office visits to 50 state lawmakers. The industry emphasized the under-investment in infrastructure and the need for long-life, durable concrete solutions. Industry participants also worked to increase awareness on the crisis with the Federal Highway Trust Fund. Additionally, lawmakers learned of the importance of Tennessee’s flagship Concrete Industry Management program at Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro.
As a result of the efforts, the Tennessee General Assembly is advancing Joint Resolution HJR0932 calling on the state’s Congressional Delegation to act quickly to fix the Highway Trust Fund and pass a multi-year Surface Transportation Bill.

NRMCA members Holcim and Lafarge, the world’s two biggest cement companies, said earlier this week that they had agreed to merge. Holcim, based near Zurich, Switzerland, and Lafarge, based in Paris, rank among the market leaders in cement and related products like stone, gravel and sand. Last year, they had combined revenue of about $44 billion and adjusted pretax income of about $8.9 billion. They have a combined work force of about 135,000 employees. The companies expect the deal to close in the first half of 2015. They said it would give the combined company production sites in 90 countries, with no single country accounting for more than 10 percent of revenue.

The companies view the deal as a way to expand in faster-growing regions where lower-cost competitors pose a threat. The merger would create a company to be called LafargeHolcim. Wolfgang Reitzle, a board member at Holcim, would serve as chairman of the new company’s board. A 14-member board would include seven members from each company. LafargeHolcim is to be based in Switzerland.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized NRMCA Producer member CalPortland Company with a 2014 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year designation for its efforts in energy use management. The company will be recognized in an EPA ceremony in Washington, DC, on April 29. CalPortland has been an ENERGY STAR partner since 1996; 2013 accomplishments include:
• Reducing energy intensity by nearly two-percent compared to 2012, resulting in 0.13 trillion Btu in savings. This amounts to a reduction of 12,586 metric tons of CO2. Cumulative reductions in energy intensity of nearly 14 percent since 2005 have saved more than $52 million.
• Conducting an in-depth study of natural gas fuel use in on/off road vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; a pilot project is planned for an asphalt plant.
• Completing a large gas conditioning tower project at the Mojave Cement Plant reducing energy consumption by 15.7 million kWh per year and producing an annual savings of $1.25 million.

ENERGY STAR was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency. Today, ENERGY STAR offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations. 16,000 organizations are ENERGY STAR partners committed to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes, and buildings.

NRMCA Vice President, Sustainability, Tien Peng, recently participated in the BuildWell 2014 Conference, a gathering of deep-green building practitioners held in Sausalito, CA. The conference played host to world-renowned speakers and a network of participants that affects the way building materials are specified, including Architecture2030, Warner-Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, Cradle-2-Cradle, Health Product Declaration Collaborative, U.S. Green Building Council, Webcor, U.S. EPA, ARUP, Google, Facebook and Gensler. Environmental disclosures and product transparency was a key focus of the event.

Keynote speaker Ed Mazria, founder of Architecture2030, challenged our specifiers to encourage manufacturers to develop their Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Industry Average EPDs and a plan to achieve the 2030 Challenge for Products. Demonstrating the market value of taking a sustainable leadership position, Bay Area’s Central Concrete’s Ryan Henkensiefken presented the case for low-carbon concrete. Mazria as well as other participants complimented the concrete industry initiatives, but noted more companies must work to understand their environmental and health impacts with EPDs and HPDs.

NRMCA has three initiatives to help members achieve these product disclosure goals. NRMCA established its EPD Program Operator status under strict international standards by which EPDs are developed and verified (certified) in order to help concrete producers and suppliers meet new disclosure requirements cost effectively. NRMCA is also developing an industry-wide EPD so that members can compare their environmental impacts to industry baselines. Another project, funded by the RMC Research & Education Foundation, will provide a methodology and guide for concrete producers to report material ingredients and chemical constituents of their products.

Last week, Washington, DC, mayor Vincent Gray announced the adoption of the 2013 DC Green Construction Code and the 2013 DC Energy Conservation Code as mandatory codes applicable to public- and private-sector buildings. By the adoption of these codes, the District of Columbia is taking a leadership role in fostering green-building practices and fundamentally transforming the way buildings are designed and constructed, reports NRMCA Vice President, Sustainability, Tien Peng. DC was already the first city to mandate that certain privately-owned new building construction meet LEED standards, a move that was soon followed by other major cities, including Boston and Los Angeles. In recent years, DC has consistently topped USGBC’s list of the highest number of LEED certified projects in the country.

Based on the 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC) with local amendments, the 2013 DC Green Construction Code applies to all construction projects greater than 10,000 square feet except single family homes, townhouses and multifamily residential construction three stories or fewer. The Construction Codes were effective upon publication on Friday, March 28.

NRMCA’s Lionel Lemay participated in the first of six workshops organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to address the President’s Climate Action Plan that directs NIST to convene a panel on disaster-resilience standards. The objective of the workshops is to develop a comprehensive, community-based resilience framework and provide guidelines for consistently safe buildings and infrastructure. The April 7 meeting, held at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD, engaged a broad network of stakeholders to focus on the role that buildings and infrastructure play in ensuring community resilience. Through the workshops, NIST will develop a Disaster Resilience Framework to establish the overall performance goals; assess existing standards, codes and practices, and identify gaps that must be addressed in order to bolster community resilience.

Additional workshops are planned throughout the remainder of 2014 and early 2015 with April 2015 as the target for the first draft of the framework. NRMCA’s Lemay and Tien Peng will participate in all six conferences in order to ensure the document focuses appropriately on standards and incentives for resilient constructions.

Last week, the Supreme Court struck down the two-year ceilings that Congress has imposed on donations by individuals to presidential and congressional candidates, parties and some — but not all — political action groups in a 5-4 decision in McCutcheon v. the Federal Election Committee. Alabama businessman Shaun McCutcheon (along with the Republican National Committee), sued the FEC over the two-year limits which stopped McCutcheon from giving anything to candidates or political panels once his donations had reached ceilings. He argued that curbing the number of candidates he could support infringed on his right to engage in political expression.

The majority of justices agreed with him. In his opinion, Chief Justice Roberts dismissed that the caps were needed to combat corruption in politics, stating that it will be kept in check by the caps on how much each single donation can be. The opinion stated: "An aggregate limit on how many candidates and committees an individual may support through contributions is not a modest restraint at all. The government may no more restrict how many candidates or causes a donor may support than it may tell a newspaper how many candidates it may endorse."

The ruling will formally go into effect on April 27 and only applies to federal elections. The current per-donation limits the Court left intact are $2,600 per election to a candidate (with primary and general elections treated separately), $32,400 per year to a national party committee, $10,000 per year to a state or local party committee and $5,000 per year to a regular political action committee (but that cap does not apply to "Super PACs" that do not give money to candidates). The fundraising limits associated with political action committees like NRMCA’s CONCRETEPAC will not be changed.

What the Court struck down were these two-year ceilings that have been operating during 2013 and 2014: $48,600 to federal candidates and $74,600 to political committees. Of that $74,600, no more than $48,600 can be donated to state and local party committees and PACs.

Last Congress your efforts were successful in defeating "card check." Now, the Obama Administration is trying to enact "card check" through regulation. Federal regulators appointed by the Obama Administration to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and Department of Labor (DOL) have proposed three new initiatives that threaten your ability to seek and retain legal counsel and discuss union organizing drives with your employees. The NLRB has proposed a regulation that would shorten union representation elections from 38 days to 10 days. These "ambush elections" would leave you almost no time to speak with your employees about the disadvantages of unionization. The NLRB is also allowing unions to gerrymander elections by cherry picking small groups of employees that support the union and letting them form "micro-unions," which are easier to organize but will tear businesses apart.  At the same time, DOL has proposed a regulation that will make it harder for you to get information about how to lawfully communicate with your employees about unions. This will make a mockery of real elections and lead to "card check" by regulation.  

NRMCA, working with the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, is pleased to provide you with an easy way to contact the NLRB and your members of Congress. Tell them to stop "card check" by regulation and stop "micro-unions." Tell your senators and representative in Congress to oppose DOL's persuader rule, the ambush rule and the NLRB's micro-union standard, and ask them to support legislation that would stop this attack on American business. There are separate action alerts for each rule on and an additional outside link in Persuader to voice your opinion and tell the NLRB to stop pushing its ambush election rule. Make sure to click on the link for Senate letters on the ambush election and micro-union alerts. Thank you for lending your voice to these important issues.
