Michigan Alternative Energy
(2008-05-30)
(wgvu) - MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's junior U.S. senator
says the state could become a leading producer of alternative
energy if it gets the right government help.
Democrat Debbie Stabenow is attending the Detroit Regional
Chamber's annual Mackinac island conference.
She says the key to making the alternative energy business a
success is offering the kinds of tax breaks and aid extended to oil
and gas companies.
Stabenow says a pending Senate budget bill would pump 2 billion
dollars into development of energy-efficient goods, services and
training.
It includes 250 million dollars for research on high-tech
batteries needed for electric and hybrid vehicles.
