Would you like to see your Texas Government at work? Would you like to see what REALLY happened an the TCEQ hearing whether to approve or deny the uranium mining permit?
Click this link and you may see and hear the entire hearing but RealPlayer must be downloaded if you don't have it already. There's a link on this site to download it. The hearing is around 30 minutes long.

Good job Dianna on the reporting, but a couple of things were left out.
OPIC (Office of Public Insurance), another state agency, recommended that this permit be denied because of obvious potential groundwater contamination. That recommendation was disregarded as well.
EPA has the final say, either granting or denying the Aquifer Exemption, so it's not a "go" yet.
Incidentally, I have a couple of acres out here close to Coleto Creek that is now for sale, but I can't guarantee the quality of the water in the future.
Get ready Kevin. Here it comes.
