This week’s video podcast of “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” goes to a House veteran and expert on two priority issues facing the U.S. economy, raw materials (mining) and infrastructure. Rep. Don Young (R-AK) is ranking member on the House Natural Resources Committee, deeply involved in both issues.
On infrastructure, he sees the danger of continued inaction until some disaster strikes. Young also passes harsh judgment on H.R. 2262, the Hard Rock Mining and Reclamation Act, already passed by the House: ““It was the worst bill I’ve had before me in 35 years…This bill would actually make most mining companies disappear from the United States.”
NAM President John Engler offers closing commentary on a critical but often overlooked issue facing U.S. exporters — the antiquated and ineffective system of export controls, doing a disservice both to our national security and U.S. economic vitality.
