NSSGA Highlights Continuing Resolution
The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association reports the status of the Senate continuing resolution on their website:
Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and ranking member Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) have released the Senate’s version of a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government through the rest of the fiscal year. The bill includes restoration of the funding levels for roads and transit accounts approved by Congress last summer in MAP-21, offering relief from the current CR, which did not account for the increases contained in the law.
