Roanoke basin group weighs in on governor’s uranium regulations order
The Roanoke River Basin Association says Gov. Bob McDonnell’s order directing the development of statutory and administrative regulations for uranium mining and milling sidesteps Virginia law. “The Virginia law unambiguously reserves the authority to lift the uranium ban to the state legislature and developing regulations ahead of the legislative vote may prove to be a complete waste of taxpayers’ money. The Roanoke River Basin Association disapproves of Governor McDonnell’s action as premature and fiscally imprudent.” Read the RRBA’s full statement here.
