VIRGINIA NUCLEAR ENERGY CONSORTIUM AUTHORITY: Why it Should be Illegal
The Virginia Nuclear Energy Consortium Authority is an attempt to gain through secrecy what has recently failed through the democratic process, namely, a comprehensive industrial plan that could include not only the mining of uranium in Virginia, but also could lay the groundwork for a nuclear waste management infrastructure to consolidate regional, national, and possibly international nuclear waste in Virginia.
The purpose of Virginia Nuclear Energy Consortium Authority (VNECA) is to promote nuclear energy and related nuclear industries, but according to the Daily Progress, the VNECA “would be exempted from a whole raft of laws that are designed to protect the public — the Freedom of Information Act, as well as provisions of the State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act, Investment of Public Funds Act, Government Data Collection and Dissemination Practices Act, Public Procurement Act.”

Oppose the bills HB1790/SB1138 while they are still in the legislature, and if they pass let the Governor know that you oppose. ACT NOW.
