Virginia Lawmakers Meet to Discuss Uranium Report

Bloomberg Businessweek reported that the Coal and Energy Commission is meeting today with its subcommittee on uranium mining as well as Uranium Working Group members, who recently submitted a report on uranium industry issues to Republican Governor Bob McDonnell. The report is aimed at helping Virginia lawmakers decide whether to lift the state’s 30-year moratorium on uranium mining.

As quoted in the market news:

The report did not include a recommendation on the state’s 30-year ban but it did lay out a regulatory structure that would need to be in place if uranium mining were to occur.

The issue is headed to the 2013 session of the General Assembly.
