+ - Electronic Firms Support End of Conflict Minerals->

Submitted by tburton
tburton (995198) writes "The U.S. House of Representatives yesterday released the Conflict Minerals Trade Act (HR 4128) to try and end the international trade of Tungsten, Tantalum and Coltan. Minerals accused of fueling violent rape and murder in eastern Congo. Since the very same minerals power the most popular consumer electronics from HP, Verizon, Nokia, RIM and Intel, the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) has quickly signed a statement of support. Advocacy groups are hopeful these commitments prove to be meaningful as consumers begin to question the end result of the supply chains powering their favorite gadget."
