AZGS map used to support mineral resources bill

When Congressmen Paul Gosar (R-AZ) spoke in favor of the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act (H.R.4402) on the House floor, he used the Mineral Resources of Arizona map (AZGS Map 33) to make his case.   You can watch his House speech in the video below. H.R. 4402 passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 256 to 160.  Mr. Gosar is the first co-sponsor of the bill.

    Another bad choose by our Congressional delegation,when will they realize that water is more precious then any mineral. When will they realize that we live in a desert and we are in a drought and you can't keep allowing open pit mines that suck millions of gallons of water to be placed without any environmental considerations. I wonder what industry supports his campaigns?

    Bureaucratic delays in the permitting process are costing American workers employment opportunities.

    It shouldn't take longer to permit a major mining operation than it took for America to put a man on moon.
