BREAKING NEWS: Bolling opposes uranium mining

Friday, December 14, 2012

DANVILLE (AP) — Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling is taking a stand against uranium mining in Virginia, citing the “chilling impact” it could have on business recruitment and jobs in Southside Virginia.

The Republican was to make the announcement with business leaders in Danville on Friday. His position is significant because he is the McDonnell administration’s job creation czar and casts the tie-breaking vote in the Senate.

Virginia Uranium Inc. has made job creation a key part of its argument to end a 30-year ban on uranium mining in Virginia so it can tap a 119-million-pound uranium deposit in Pittsylvania County.

Bolling said there are too many questions regarding the environmental impact of uranium mining and milling. He also cited strong mining opposition among area members of the General Assembly.
