house Bill H.R. 1937

Do the Feds Need to Facilitate More Development of Critical Minerals?

Argument in favor

Introducing more certainty to the permitting process for strategic mineral projects would be beneficial to developers and the court system.

Maybe the question should be, When will the Federal Government and EPA give mining companies long term leases to federal land. But if the US does grant access, will those minerals be shipped to China or other foreign governments. Hillary has already signed over our uranium assets to a Russian company. What a web Hillary has weaved in her practice to deceive and coverup of her lack of leadership.

Yes we need to develop more sources for rare earth minerals as China pretty much has a stranglehold on these elements. They own mines in the US too.

Yet another bureaucracy standing in the way of recovery. This is a no brainer, but what is sad is that we need this kind of legislation and that people can't just do the right thing. It must be a govt disease.

Argument opposed

This would only make it harder for groups to block and delay mining projects. The U.S. shouldn’t be developing its mineral resources.

This bill handcuffs environmentalists and citizens to Corporate timetables. While some environmental impacts are immediate, so many more require the study of longer termed effects. By requiring a scant 90 days to bring forth cases we are neglecting to protect our land from great misuse.

I believe that most of us are not represented by our elected officials, the day of public service are over, now all congressmen and congresswomen want is money, The political system is corrupt. Our political system fails to meet the test of a democracy. It's all about winning, and has nothing to do with the people. A total lack of leadership concern, and compassion.
