Core Issues

Hundreds of thousands of Americans make up the U.S. mining industry. The National Mining Association (NMA) is their voice before Congress, the administration, federal agencies, the judiciary and media. Focusing on policymaking, regulatory and permitting matters, as well as litigation, NMA’s Core Issues and Campaigns highlight issues that matter most to the mining community, to its current and future business needs, and to the entire American supply chain, which begins with mining.
