STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK R. HERRING

~ On oral arguments at Supreme Court in defense of Virginia’s ban on uranium mining ~

Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement after oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court defending Virginia’s three-decade ban on uranium mining:

“After presenting our defense at the Supreme Court and hearing the arguments on the other side I’m even more convinced that upholding Virginia’s ban on uranium mining is the right outcome legally, and it’s what’s best for the health, safety, and well-being of Virginia’s citizens, environment, and economy. Virginia has decided not to take on the risk of uranium mining, and I am proud to defend that decision in front of the highest court in the land. I’m optimistic that the Court will see that Virginia has the right to protect our people and our environment from a risky, unnecessary, and unwanted uranium mine.”
