Uranium Mining May Never Occur On The East Coast
The sponsor of legislation that would have allowed uranium mining in Virginia has withdrawn his bill amid almost certain defeat in a Senate committee. Senator John Watkins withdrew the bill before the Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources was to hear it. A companion bill remains in the House, but its prospects of moving forward appear slim. The Watkins legislation would have created the regulatory structure to oversee uranium mining in Virginia, which would effectively end a 31-year prohibition on the mining of the radioactive ore. A company has pushed for an end to the moratorium so it can mine the largest known uranium deposit in the country located at Pittsylvania. Full-scale uranium mining has never occurred on the East Coast, and opponents fear the environmental impacts. (bg)
