The National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act (H.R. 1937), passed through the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 9th. The legislation is the House companion bill for Senator Murkowski's American Mineral Security Act (S. 883) and was introduced by Representative Amodei. Previously, IMA-NA submitted testimony to the Senate supporting the objectives of the American Mineral Security Act. Passage of Representative Amodei's bill out of Committee means it will have a chance to make it to the House floor this session. IMA-NA continues to support these pieces of legislation that support minerals information, science, and the mining industry.
