The Georgia Ready Mixed Concrete Association (GRMCA) recently hosted Georgia District 7 Representative Rob Woodall as part of a statewide transportation speaking tour at the Martin Marietta quarry in Augusta, Georgia.
Rep. Woodall shared his insights on the FAST Act and discussed transportation issues. He urged our members to approach him with industry specific problems so that he can work towards crafting solutions in the future. Rep. Woodall has made it clear that he is a champion of our industry and we look forward to continuing our partnership.
After the morning meeting, GRMCA staffers attended the Augusta Chamber of Commerce Transportation Forum and heard Rob Woodall speak on the future of transportation and infrastructure spending.
Our next stop was to hear Governor Nathan Deal deliver a moving presentation on Opportunity School Districts. Producer Jimmie Tanner with Columbia County Concrete was able to share some kind words with him on all that he has accomplished for the state of Georgia.
All in all, it was a productive day in which we were able to visit with members in the area and learn about the future of infrastructure and transportation and how it will affect our industry.
