From The Telluride Daily Planet (Matthew Beaudin):

“I support careful EPA oversight of the entire permitting process and any subsequent operation of this mill,” [Senator Bennet’s] letter to Jim Martin, the EPA’s regional administrator, reads. “Any and all EPA analysis needs to ensure a safe, environmentally responsible and balanced approach to the potential development of this natural resource.”

“It’s a voice that equals hundreds or thousands of smaller voices,” said San Miguel County Commissioner Joan May. “They’ll listen when he speaks.”

Earlier this winter, the CDPHE issued a radioactive materials license, effectively permitting the project, to be built 60 miles west of Telluride just outside of Paradox, Colo.
