MAA members led the drive to reform the gravel pit regulations, helped write the new laws, and then lobbied hard to get them passed. Today MAA continues its advocacy on behalf of the aggregate industry by ensuring that the rules regulating gravel and rock extraction remain effective and practical.

Other issues include truck weights, transportation and highway issues, mine safety, environmental regulations and land use restrictions.  Air emission licensing and compliance requirements for rock crushers, stationary diesel engines and concrete and asphalt plants are also of concern.
