Brewer continues to brown down AZ Gov's office

Brewer sounds like Palin: 'Drill, baby, drill!'

FLAGSTAFF AZ -- Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Glendale) continued her anti-conservation record today with opposition to protecting the Grand Canyon National Park region from uranium mining.

Many Arizona lawmakers want Grand Canyon area public lands protected and are supporting US Interior Dept. and other proposals for permanent conservation. C'mon, Governor, work with us to guard the symbol of our great state, the Grand Canyon, which is also a huge environmental and economic benefit to Arizona and America.

Hey, my state Senator was discussing the whole uranium mining issue a couple of months ago and she said there didn't need to be any restrictions 'because the earth is 6,000 years old.'

It's bad enough that they are against saving anything for future generations but it's worse that they are against it without having any good reason to be against it.
