Senators push for U.S. to expand mining for electric vehicle supply chain
WASHINGTON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - U.S. senators voiced
bipartisan support on Tuesday for the expansion of domestic
mining and minerals recycling, part of a push to jumpstart the
country's electric vehicle supply chain and offset China's
rising dominance in the fast-growing space.
"China is consolidating control of the entire supply chain
for clean technologies," Senator Lisa Murkowski, the Republican
chair of the Senate's Energy and Natural Resources Committee,
said at a hearing. "The United States is falling behind ... and
allowing that to happening is a strategic mistake."
