Uranium-accountability bill keeps moving at Capitol

A bill that will hold uranium mining companies, namely Powertech, to their pledges not to contaminate groundwater got approval from the House Appropriations Committee at the State Capitol today. The bill, HB-1161, is now up for a vote by the entire House and would then move on to the Senate from there.

For some background on the bill, I wrote a column a few weeks ago on the topic. And for the skinny on Powertech's radioactive plans for Northern Colorado and why people are building up opposition, check out the Chronicle's feature from last November.
