TITLE 30 - MINERAL LANDS AND MINING

CHAPTER 30 - NATIONAL CRITICAL MATERIALS COUNCIL

-HEAD-

Sec. 1801. Congressional findings and declaration of purposes

-STATUTE-

(a) The Congress finds that -

(1) the availability of adequate supplies of strategic and

critical industrial minerals and materials continues to be

essential for national security, economic well-being, and

industrial production;

(2) the United States is increasingly dependent on foreign

sources of materials and vulnerable to supply interruption in the

case of many of those minerals and materials essential to the

Nation's defense and economic well-being;

(3) together with increasing import dependence, the Nation's

industrial base, including the capacity to process minerals and

materials, is deteriorating - both in terms of facilities and in

terms of a trained labor force;

(4) research, development, and technological innovation,

especially related to improved materials and new processing

technologies, are important factors which affect our long-term

capability for economic competitiveness, as well as for

adjustment to interruptions in supply of critical minerals and

materials;

(5) while other nations have developed and implemented specific

long-term research and technology programs to develop

high-performance materials, no such policy and program evolution

has occurred in the United States;

(6) establishing critical materials reserves, by both the

public and private sectors and with proper organization and

management, represents one means of responding to the genuine

risks to our economy and national defense from dependency on

foreign sources;

(7) there exists no single Federal entity with the authority

and responsibility for establishing critical materials policy and

for coordinating and implementing that policy; and

(8) the importance of materials to national goals requires an

organizational means for establishing responsibilities for

materials programs and for the coordination, within and at a

suitably high level of the Executive Office of the President,

with other existing policies within the Federal Government.

(b) It is the purpose of this chapter -

(1) to establish a National Critical Materials Council under

and reporting to the Executive Office of the President which

shall -

(A) establish responsibilities for and provide for necessary

coordination of critical materials policies, including all

facets of research and technology, among the various agencies

and departments of the Federal Government, and make

recommendations for the implementation of such policies;

(B) bring to the attention of the President, the Congress,

and the general public such materials issues and concerns,

including research and development, as are deemed critical to

the economic and strategic health of the Nation; and

(C) ensure adequate and continuing consultation with the

private sector concerning critical materials, materials

research and development, use of materials, Federal materials

policies, and related matters;

(2) to establish a national Federal program for advanced

materials research and technology, including basic phenomena

through processing and manufacturing technology; and

(3) to stimulate innovation and technology utilization in basic

as well as advanced materials industries.
