NUCA Battling Recent Biden Administration Actions

NUCA recently reacted to the Administration’s attempted reinstatement of “WOTUS” rules and the introduction of new Buy American requirements.

Under the newly proposed plan, WOTUS (Waters of the United States) rules which govern construction along major national waterways—and had been rolled back during the previous Administration--would be reinstated. After hearing NUCA and other business groups’ concerns at a recent hearing, House T&I Committee Chairman, Sam Graves (R-MO), and his Water Resources subcommittee chairman, Rep. David Rouzer (R-NC), further advanced a resolution to repeal the proposal.

NUCA also opposes the expansion of mandates that could impact the timely delivery of projects. In his State of the Union address, President Biden proposed a requirement that all construction materials used on federally funded infrastructure projects be made in the country. NUCA CEO Doug Carlson commented, "Some components are not made in the United States and must be bought overseas to complete a job...On some projects, a delay on a single critical part can delay the entire project, driving up costs and significantly postponing its completion.”

NUCA NJ will continue to oppose efforts like these that will make it more difficult to complete projects.
