From the BEM facebook group (although Kurt told me it is the MI (BS) who award the concession (LS = CAB):
I see that many are discussing whether bergstaten has the final word or not. The law says and lst bergstaten must agree.
Example 1. BS says yes lst says yes = yes
Example 2. BS says yes lst says no = government
Example 3. BS says no lst says yes = no
Marten had a post the other day about this.
"The fundamentals to grab here is that in a legal meaning the process has re s t a r t e d from scratch. It is not "sent back" in an easy way. The issues is handled according to law. LST tries to extend the law, we know that. But, never the less, it is a formal routine here.
If Bergsstaten and LST disagree the gov m u s t handle the issue. That is the law. This is not about what the government likes or not concerning the different issues at stake. It is about law:
" Bergmästaren is normally for decision-making body Errands on bearbetningskoncession. 82 Bergmästaren Shall, however, refer the matter to the government in the following Case: • If Bergmästaren deems that the issue of concession Would be especially meaningful out of general Point of view. Until today have bergmästaren Not found reasons to refer a matter to the government By reason of this foundation, but It could be updated if application Bearbetningskoncession intends or uranium thorium. • If Bergmästaren finds reason to deviate from what County Commissioner proposed for the purposes of 3 AND 4 the cape. Environmental law. Bergmästaren is Thus unable to grant a bearbetningskoncession Against The Board's advice. " page 32 in the link below.
positive sentiment returns - scaredicats have now left. Just need confirmation of Kurt's further comments and a clear countdown to a decision. Which WILL be a yes because nobody in 5 years has yet come up with a reason why not.
