About the Bill

The U.S. Senate is debating a bipartisan energy bill that will have far-reaching impacts on our nation’s energy infrastructure, efficiency and security in the years to come.

Within the “Energy Policy Modernization Act” (S. 2012) is a much needed policy reform of our nation’s permitting process for critical minerals, which would allow our nation to utilize the critical mineral resources that are currently locked underground by a lengthy and duplicative permitting process.

The permitting situation that S. 2012 would fix is so alarming because few countries can rival our abundance of mineral resources, but due to our broken permitting system, our nation’s manufacturing supply chain is 100 percent reliant on foreign sources for 19 key minerals and more than 50 percent import-dependent for an additional 22 minerals.

To build an energy future that is efficient and secure, S. 2012 facilitates a timely permitting process and defines the necessary strategic and critical minerals for our national security, economic, and energy needs.

We cannot continue to ignore the need to fix our broken minerals policies, instead we need you to TAKE ACTION and contact your Senators and urge them to support the Energy Policy Modernization Act.

For our nation to thrive, we need a steady and secure source of domestically produced minerals – CONTACT your Senator.
