Chamber Opposes EPA Silver Valley Plan

Item: Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce opposes EPA plan/Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: "The Silver Valley has great potential for economic growth. The area's existing mining and supporting services together with tourism, real estate, and other business sectors need to be viable today and into the future. The proposal does not guarantee future mining and the plan extends the "Superfund stigma". This stigma already threatens the economic health and growth in the Silver Valley, and the greater Coeur d'Alene area. The proposal will undoubtedly threaten the area for decades to come" -- Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce.

Question: Where do you stand on EPA plans for the Silver Valley?
