Uncertain Regulatory Structure Deters Investments

America’s $6.2 trillion worth of critical mineral resources could be developed responsibly guided by some of the most stringent environmental laws in the world, but an unreliable regulatory system weakens domestic industries and stymies economic growth nationwide.

Prior to its departure from the Pebble Partnership, Anglo American had invested more than $500 million in environmental studies and engineering developments associated with the project—current positive economic impacts generated statewide in the form of jobs and new business ventures.

Rebecca Logan, general manager of the Alaska Industry Support Alliance, discusses the nation’s dependency on foreign mineral imports and the lag of domestic mineral production due to unnecessary regulatory delays in a recent Compass piece.
