The $2.3 trillion, 5,593-page bill essentially codifies Trump's executive orders on rare earths, a group of 17 minerals used to make magnets for electric vehicles, other green technologies and weapons.

The bill requires better geological studies of federal lands, funds studies into the processing and recycling of rare earths, and supports improvements to mining education programs. Reviving domestic rare earths production has become a priority for Washington as relations with China have frayed.

The bill "will enable the United States to increase the responsible production and processing of critical minerals," said Senator Lisa Murkowski, chair of the Senate's energy committee, who introduced minerals legislation last year that was folded into the larger bill here.
