Finally a step away from the outdated stigma of anti-nuclear cold war dogma, and a step toward safe low-carbon power. I'm proud that my beloved Old Dominion state will be leading the way to a responsible and energy self sufficient national consciousness.

Except Virginia Energy Resources, a Canadian publicly traded corp (as of 12/12) which owns 100% of the Coles Hill mining operations will sell their uranium to the highest bidder on the international market. They get all they profit and VA gets all the uranium clean-up jobs and environmental exposures to water supplies.
