BIA works diligently to actualize part of the Association’s Mission Statement (to both promote and safeguard the industry) in defending the clay brick industry. BIA does this thru analysis of various issues, as well as practical programs to advocate for the brick industry position. This work is guided by BIA’s Government Affairs and Compliance committee, chaired by Brad Belden of The Belden Brick Company.
SUPPORT WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT LEGISLATION IN CONGRESS
The DRIVE Safe Act would enable trucking companies to boost the number of drivers able to do interstate routes. In this way, enactment would assist BIA in improving the supply chain by providing some relief to the shortage of truckers.
BIA Urges members to write to their Congressman/woman and Senators to urge that they co-sponsor the DRIVE Safe Act, in hopes that it can gain support. The most logical vehicle for passage appears to be via attachment to an infrastructure bill currently being debated.
