Once again we find Democrat Nolan voting right along with these Republicans who we are told are so rotten we must settle for the "lesser evil" Democrats. Just like with Obama; vote for a Democrat and get a Republican.
See this link for definition of "strategic and critical minerals:"
And I would note that the Minnesota Indian Gaming Association and the National Indian Gaming Association have contributed thousands of dollars to Rick Nolan's campaigns.
I would note that Rick Nolan has supported, and in return received support from, Kevin Leecy and Archie LaRose--- to vicious and violent criminals involved in Indian Gaming with Kevin Leecy being the Vice-chair of the National Indian Gaming Association. This is the hypocrite who beat his wife unconscious and Nolan and his DFL buddies saw to it that Leecy was not placed in prison where he belongs.
All of this corruption and violence go hand-in-hand with a terribly sick society with the Military-Industrial Complex at the root of it all.
Needless to say, the drone industry requires many of these "strategic and critical minerals" as do the slot machines of the Indian Gaming Industry... hence we find these two partners destroying our living environment, exploiting workers and in the case of the Indian Gaming Industry forcing workers to work in loud, noisy, smoke-filled casinos without protection from any rights.
