Urgent Action Needed Today: Dodd-Frank Conflict Minerals Under Attack

Conflict-Minerals-Rebels-and-Child-Soldiers-in-Congo-Urgent Action Needed TODAY: The conflict minerals provision, Dodd-Frank section 1502, is under attack – with a House vote scheduled in just a few hours on an amendment that seeks to dismantle all the significant progress that has been achieved to reduce the flow of money to armed groups and increase corporate transparency in Congo. If this amendment moves forward, it will be one dangerous step closer to becoming law.
