240206 Mining Regulatory Clarity Act House Natural Resources


February 06, 2024


Dear Chairman Westerman and Ranking Member Grijalva:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports H.R. 2925, the “Mining Regulatory Clarity Act of 2023,” and we thank you for considering this important legislation.

Rapidly increasing demand for critical minerals coupled with advancing geopolitical instability makes developing a secure and reliable domestic supply chain for critical minerals vital.  H.R. 2925 would help remove permitting obstacles for domestic critical mineral development and enable common sense construction and safety practices at potential mine sites by establishing a process to enable operators to use, occupy, and conduct operations on public land before mineral deposit have been positively identified.

The Chamber urges you to favorably report H.R. 2925.


Neil L. Bradley
Executive Vice President, Chief Policy Officer,
and Head of Strategic Advocacy
