Trump Declined to Issue Quotas for Uranium Production

U.S. President Donald Trump late Friday declined to issue quotas for domestic uranium production but instead ordered a new 90-day review by a group of federal agencies Reuters reports.

Trump said in a written memorandum he did not concur with a U.S. Commerce Department investigation that found uranium imports threaten to impair U.S. national security.

Trump wrote that while findings “raise significant concerns” he was ordering a deeper review. “A fuller analysis of national security considerations with respect to the entire nuclear fuel supply chain is necessary at this time.”

The United States sourced just 7% of its uranium domestically in 2017, with most of the rest coming from Canada, Australia and Russia, according to the Energy Information Administration.
