From the Danville Register and Bee:Democrat Terry McAuliffe wouldn’t say whether he’d back uranium mining in Virginia as he expanded what he calls his business plan for the state.He effectively punted here, but I haven't heard Moran or Deeds on the issue.
... McAuliffe said he’d await the results of a study on health and environmental effects of the proposed mine near Chatham.
When asked whether Virginia Uranium Inc., which stands to make billions from mining, should pay for the study, McAuliffe had no objection to it.

Interesting tidbit over at Dem Bones today. Terry McAuliffe's (non-) stance on uranium mining in the Southside:
