The Nation

Company and union officials, testifying before a congressional committee in Salt Lake City, joined in criticizing the Reagan Administration for failing to support measures they say are needed to revive the dying U.S. copper industry. They charged that lack of such support is hurting efforts to help the industry, which has closed nearly half of the nation’s copper mines since 1979. The hearing was on the proposed National Copper Policy Act of 1985 that would seek to stabilize world copper production through voluntary trade restraint agreements.
