    EPA Reverses Obama Era Last Minute Uranium Mining Regulations

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on Friday that it is withdrawing the pending rulemaking for uranium mining and thorium mill tailings.

    The regulations were put in place on Jan. 19, 2017, just hours before Barack Obama left office and President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
    “In a rush to regulate during the waning hours of the previous administration, the agency proposed a regulation that would have imposed significant burdens on uranium miners and the communities they support,” Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler said in the press release announcing the decision.
    Rep. John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, praised the agency’s move.
    “Today’s announcement is the right decision,” Barrasso said. “The Nuclear Regulatory Commission – our nation’s principal nuclear regulator – has said there is no health or safety justification for EPA’s midnight rule.”
    “The NRC has regulated in situ uranium recovery for nearly 40 years,” Barrasso said. “The agency has never found an instance of groundwater contamination that would be addressed by this rule.”

    It was a "proposed" regulation which never was implemented.

    And it wasn't implemented because the Trump administration blocked it, now they are killing it for good.

    So nothing was actually changed. Nothing was reversed since it was never in place (making the headline wrong). Non- news.

    It was going to happen and Trump stopped it.
