Title: Virginia Energy Plan

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that creates a ten-year comprehensive energy plan for the state of Virginia. This bill calls for the research, exploration, and development of offshore energy resources, which would lift a 15-year-old suspension of drilling for natural gas 30 miles offshore. This bill establishes Clean Coal Technology Fund; “directs the Commonwealth Transportation Board to encourage the use of biodiesel and other alternative fuels;” and creates market incentives to increase demand for cleaner vehicles. This bill would also provide grants to companies that use clean and efficient energy.
