AMERICAN MANUFACTURING HAS SEEN STEADY GROWTH, IN RECENT YEARS.  AND, THE NATION'S MANUFACTURERS RELY ON RAW MINERALS AND OTHER MATERIALS, TO MAKE THEIR PRODUCTS.  YET, THESE SAME COMPANIES OFTEN STRUGGLE TO GET THE MATERIALS THAT THEY NEED.  ACCORDING TO THE "NATIONAL MINING ASSOCIATION", MINERALS ARE ESSENTIAL TO SMART-PHONES, TABLETS, LAPTOPS, AND SO MANY OTHER HIGH-TECH ITEMS THAT WE USE EVERY DAY.  HOWEVER, MANUFACTURERS ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR ABILITY TO SECURE VITAL MINERALS AND METALS, TO MEET THE DEMAND.  THE ASSOCIATION SAYS THAT--AS MANUFACTURING GROWS--AMERICAN COMPANIES MUST HAVE A RELIABLE SUPPLY OF RAW MATERIALS, FOR THE PRODUCTION OF THEIR GOODS.  BUT, IT ADDS, MINE-PERMITS IN THE U-S CAN TAKE SEVEN TO 10 YEARS TO SECURE.  THEREFORE, LAWMAKERS MUST MAKE THE MINE-PERMITTING PROCESS MORE PREDICTABLE AND EFFICIENT--TO HELP AMERICA REGAIN ITS COMPETITIVE-EDGE, AND TO PROVIDE MANUFACTURERS WITH A STEADY SUPPLY OF DOMESTIC MINERALS.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "MINERALS-MAKE-LIFE"-DOT-ORG.
