    Excerpt from The National Critical Materials Act of 1984: Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Transportation, Aviation and Materials of the Committee on Science and Technology, House of Representatives

    I think I ought to read my opening statement since we have not had a good materials hearing in some time.

    Today's hearing is the first of 2 days to consider national efforts in critical materials. In particular, we will be looking closely at the implementation of Title II of Public Law 98 - 37 3, the National Griti cal Materials Act of 1984. Today, we will look at broad materials policy questions. On the second day, we will focus on the important issue of critical materials in South Africa.

    Congressional concern for critical materials goes back many years. The oil embargo of the seventies made us all aware of import vulnerabilities with other critical materials such as cobalt, chromium, or manganese. More recently, we have seen the advent of new, advanced materials which will determine in large part the products and industries of the next several decades. Such materials will be vital to the Nation's economic competitiveness as well as to maintaining our strategic strength.

    Recognizing this importance, Congress passed a number of laws, including the 1984 Materials Act, to take specific steps to deal with these matters. Unfortunately, despite a few sporadic though appar ently well-intentioned efforts, the executive branch in the past 5 years has failed in implementing these laws. For instance, though the 1984 act was signed by President Reagan more than a year ago, he has yet to appoint the three-member National Critical Materials Council or to carry out any of the required programs considered central to the act.
