Draft on Proposed Uranium Mining Legislation


Richmond, VA - The drafting of proposed uranium mining legislation is expected to be completed this week in Richmond as yet another study on the subject makes its debut.

Senator John Watkins has proposed legislation that could open the door to the mining of a 119 million pound deposit in Pittsylvania County.

The legislation is needed to end a decades long moratorium on the mining of the radioactive ore.

Meanwhile, Governor McDonnell's Uranium Working Group expects to issue its final study, this one on the socioeconomic impact of allowing uranium mining.
