Maybe you saw the news this week--Virginia Uranium, Inc. spent nearly twice as much on lobbying as #2 Dominion Virginia Power.  And the $572,697 that VUI spent is just the tip of the iceberg.

It doesn't include hundreds of thousands more in sponsorships to Southside Virginia Little League Teams and paid interns standing outside Southside convenience stores with misleading petitions promising jobs.   
Contact your Senator and Delegate TODAY to KEEP THE BAN!

There were no all expenses paid trips to Paris, France like last year, but that is because UVI has refocused its attention on buying the best "astroturf" grassroots support that money can buy.

But we've beat back Virginia Uranium two years running and with your help, we'll continue to do so.

The decision right now rests with Governor McDonnell and we'd like you to ask your Virginia Delegates and Senators to urge the Governor to NOT move forward with regulations that could open the state to mining.

Please ACT today to send an e-mail to your state legislators making it clear that you oppose uranium mining and asking them to write the Governor.

Thanks, and have a safe and happy Labor Day.
