Uranium Mining, uranium mining .. hum, wasn't there a story recently about a certain U.S. Congressman running for reelection whose family may had holdings in uranium sites in Virginia?

Seems to me that the Congressman declared himself innocent of any knowledge of those apparent FACTS. Then left town to do his part to continue to decrease the popularity of Congress.

Wonder if there is a connection between that revelation and now the State Legislature want to address some updating.? Well of course not. Nah, Politicians don't lie.

more to come (for sure)

They did not mention the 80 Billion stood to be made and how much goes into the pockets of our congressmen that vote yes. They always cover it up by all the jobs that will be created. Look at some of the areas that this is going on in. They cant drink there water they cant water there stock, there land is worthless. The half life of the waste is hundreds of years. Watch closely to see how our new congress gets bought.Send a message to your reps. if you have time vote no. All the regulation in the world cannot stop the contamination.
