The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) honored Senator Inhofe this week for his leadership in implementing the Safe, Accountable, Flexible Transportation Equity Act – a legacy for users (SAFETEA-LU). NSSGA presented Senator Inhofe with their Congressional Transportation Leaders award. In announcing the honor on January 2, 2008, the NSSGA complimented Senator Inhofe for his leadership, writing:
“This award recognizes your important role in implementing the Safe, Accountable, Flexible Transportation Equity Act – a legacy for users (SAFETEA-LU). Combined with your concern for the soundness of the Highway Trust Fund and the future of transportation infrastructure in the United States, our association has been inspired to honor both your vision and your persuasive hard work. Your efforts in this area help build America’s economy by assuring that our people and our nation’s products are able to move safely and efficiently along environmental sensitive heights, in and out of air and seaports, and via inland waterways and rail.”
The Oklahoma Aggregates Association recently highlighted NSSGA’s recognition of Senator Inhofe, and added their support for Senator Inhofe’s work on transportation issues: “Senator Inhofe is one of the best friends and advocates of a modern, safe and efficient surface transportation system we have in Washington.”
