CNBC reported leaders in Virginia are set to debate the states 30-year ban on mining uranium.
As quoted in the market news:
The Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote Monday on a resolution introduced by Supervisor Marshall Ecker. He’s urging residents to attend the meeting in Chatham to signal their support of the ban.
Ecker says he’s opposed to mining a 112-million-pound uranium deposit because he says it would forever change a beautiful, rural landscape.
