From a tiny area along the New York border called the Slate Valley, Vermont is the leading producer of slate in the country. And as old quarries are reopened or expanded, the rub between quarry owners and neighboring homeowners has gotten tense. We'll take a look at today's slate industry in Vermont.
Joining us to discuss the issues surrounding slate mining and the industry's Act 250 exemption are:
- Diane Snelling, Vermont Natural Resources Board Chair
- Annette Smith, executive director of Vermonters for a Clean Environment
- Richard Hill, president of Greenstone Slate Company
