SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 51

(By Senators Edgell, Foster and Oliverio)


Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the potential beneficial use of alternative fuels and biofuels by state government and private industry.

Whereas, The increased usage of domestically produced alternative fuels and biofuels reduces dependence on oil supplies and provides positive environmental benefits to the State of West Virginia and results in a reduction of greenhouse emissions; and
Whereas, The use of alternative fuels and biofuels by state government and private industry creates economic opportunity for the in-state production of alternative fuels and biofuels, such as coal-to-liquids and biodiesel, and the use of alternative fuels and biofuels provides the opportunity for the state to create new jobs in a green industry; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the potential beneficial use of alternative fuels and biofuels by state government and private industry; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance seek input from state agencies and private industry on potential uses of alternative fuels and biofuels in vehicle fleets and industrial processes; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
