There is not much mining done in the US. Most of it is done in South America and Australia, with a little done in Canada and Russia. The only thing that gets minned in the US anymore in coal. The mining industry is now controlled by a handful of massive milti-nationals, and they are all intestested in South America and Australia. The US was mined clean long ago.

Actually, there is a lot of mining going on...

Base and precious metals, coal, sand & gravel, salt, decorative rock (granite counter-tops, eg.)... a great variety of materials and commodities are mined for our uses every day.

The industry is alive and would be thriving- in a good economy- a bill like this will probably aid in killing a large portion of it.

Look around and think about where all the products you use come from, they are either grown or MINED.

I can see it now, the USA becoming a net coal importer because of regs and taxes forced upon the industry. ( coal is just one to come to mind...)

But it will be very expensive when the bridge builders have to import the sand and gravel needed to refurbish/ rebuild the thousands of bridges that are a large part of our infrastructure.
