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.
