The second annual Cement & Concrete Day on the Hill, April 29–30 in Washington, D.C., brings together representatives from more than a dozen construction industry groups, as host and lead sponsor Portland Cement Association aims to expand members’ and their customers’ presence in federal transportation, environmental and water resources infrastructure.
Key Day on the Hill advocacy issues this year include a fully funded, multi- year highway bill reauthorization, with reforms to maximize impact of each dollar spent; promoting a Federal Resilience Tax Credit; and, enactment of a new Federal Water Resources Bill. Based at the Willard Hotel, two blocks from the White House, the event is open to all member company executives and staff of concrete- and masonry-related associations.
Joining PCA and National Ready Mixed Concrete Association as sponsors are the American Coal Ash Association, American Concrete Pavement Association, American Concrete Pressure Pipe Association, Concrete Reinforcing Steel Association, Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association, Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, National Concrete Masonry Association, Slag Cement Association and National Precast Concrete Association.
