“Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, a conservative group that encourages Republicans to back clean energy initiatives, supports the GOP bill because it aims to help ensure a reliable supply of components for battery storage and solar equipment.

“If you want to create the expansion of clean energy, it means you want to have a steady and reliable and affordable source of minerals,” said Heather Reams, executive director of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions. Reams said she is encouraging lawmakers to maintain environmental and conservation standards as they seek more domestic mining.”
