The 12 member associations that together are the North American Concrete Alliance (NACA) wish to thank members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee for delivering a surface reauthorization bill ahead of schedule and with provisions important to our transportation networks.

We strongly support included language calling for increased investment and resilient construction methods. NACA leadership also understands that votes scheduled tomorrow are the first of many that will be needed to advance a plan to the President. Our organizations, and their 600,000+ employees assigned throughout all 50 states, are fully committed to working with the Committee and with Congress to produce and pass a robust and effective final reauthorization before the expiration of the FAST Act.

NACA is a coalition of 12 concrete-related national trade associations, including the American Concrete Pavement Association, the American Concrete Pipe Association, the American Concrete Pressure Pipe Association, the American Concrete Pumping Association, the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute, the Concrete Foundations Association, the National Concrete Masonry Association, the National Precast Concrete Association, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, the Portland Cement Association, the Precast/Pre-stressed Concrete Institute and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association. Our members are involved in the construction of highways, airports, bridges, ports, and underground infrastructure
