NMA Statement on “BUILDING RESILIENT SUPPLY CHAINS, REVITALIZING AMERICAN MANUFACTURING, AND FOSTERING BROAD-BASED GROWTH”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Mining Association (NMA) issued the following statement from Rich Nolan, NMA President and CEO, on the White House’s release of its summary of the 100-Day reviews under Executive Order 14017, titled, “Building Resilient Supply Chains, Revitalizing American Manufacturing, and Fostering Broad-Based Growth.”

“While we are still reviewing the report, it’s clear that this is a thoughtful review of the nation’s supply chain weaknesses that acknowledges the alarming challenges we face and the need for an all-of-government approach to address them. Throughout the report, each contributing agency recognizes the vulnerabilities inherent in our overreliance on mineral imports, the need for domestic mining support and lack of domestic processing capabilities. The conclusion is clear: addressing these exposures and building the responsible, resilient industrial base the nation needs, calls for a holistic materials strategy that includes reshoring processing capacity, ramping up our recycling efforts, deepening our partnerships with allies, and expanding domestic mineral production under world-leading environmental and labor standards. Rebuilding domestic mineral production to underpin infrastructure reinvestment, our national security, and to deploy advanced energy technologies at the speed and scale climate action requires, means we must move immediately to support domestic mining, reduce barriers to bring responsible production to market, and ensure that ‘Made in America’ is also ‘Mined in America.’”
