Tell Congress that Potash and Phosphate ARE Critical Minerals

Congress is currently considering legislation to add potash and phosphate to the critical minerals list, a list held by the U.S. Geological Survey that designates minerals of high importance for America’s supply chains, consumer needs, and national security. Once a substance is listed as a critical mineral, a single agency is assigned to permit applications and is responsible for coordinating with all other agencies necessary for final approval.
IFCA is working with The Fertilizer Institute on an easy way to tell your members of Congress that potash and phosphate are critical to both the country's food security and national security and urge them to support adding them to the critical minerals list.  Click here to tell your member of congress.
