Moses Chan testifies at US Senate

Main Content

Helium is a precious resource vital for science, technology and national security. In his testimony before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, Moses Chan discussed the conclusions of a National Academies of Science report that he co-authored in 2010, arguing that the current law’s requirement that the Bureau of Land Management sell-off nearly all the Federal Helium Reserve by 2015 could pose a threat to the availability of this resource for future U.S. scientific, technical, biomedical, and national security users of helium.
