BillionDollarBreaks – Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE American: UEC) Responds to Senate Passing of Bill Banning Russian Uranium Imports

Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC), a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company, is responding to the passing of a bill by the United States Senate. According to the announcement, HR 1042 is a bill to ban Russian uranium imports to the United States that has been passed unanimously by the senate; the house passed the bill late last year. Sponsors of the bill noted that the legislation is focused on ending America’s reliance on Russian nuclear fuel and will also help defund Russia’s war machine, revive American uranium production and jumpstart investments in America’s nuclear fuel supply chain. The bill is also designed to unlock $2.72 billion to ramp up domestic uranium fuel production. “We thank both chambers of Congress for passing this bipartisan bill that demonstrates the U.S . commitment to nuclear energy, the carbon-free energy source that powers one in every five homes in America,” said Uranium Energy president and CEO Amir Adnani in the press release. “Upon enactment, this will strengthen United States energy and national security, ending an untenable reliance on Russian uranium imports. This new law, in conjunction with the recently passed Nuclear Fuel Security Act, creates a firm foundation for long-term growth of the U.S. uranium industry to supply the fuel that powers American households, data centers, and industrial base with clean baseload power. As the fastest-growing U.S. uranium company, we are delighted to have this exciting backdrop along with positive global uranium market fundamentals and advance the restart of uranium production in Wyoming this August, followed by the resumption of our South Texas operations next year.”
