The Ruff Report: FROM RICHMOND

GUEST OPINION

URANIUM MINING

For some, this issue may not appear important. Others consider it very important.

I want to give you an update about the issue of uranium mining in Virginia. Those who live downstream to the proposed mining site understand the issue.

Those outside the Roanoke River Basin may think the issue is irrelevant to them because they live outside the affected area. However, understand that we are a Commonwealth. Something that has a significant impact -- good or bad on one region -- can affect a greater region.

In the near future, the U.S. Supreme Court will release its opinion on the issue of the right of the Virginia General Assembly to block mining of uranium for the safety of Virginians. Oral arguments were last Fall. An opinion should come soon.
