This week, Indiana Republicans called for further incentives in the state to promote alternative fuels such as ethanol. House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, with the support of the GOP, proposed the following:
  • Biofuels Grant Program to further encourage fuel stations and such retailers to install alternative fuel pumps.
  • $1,000 tax credit for residents who purchase hybrid vehicles.
  • State establishes a percentage of its power to come from solar and wind sources.
  • New state vehicles must either be a hybrid or biofuel-powered.
House Minority Leader Pat Bauer, D-South Bend also proposed suspending and, in time, the removal of the state gasoline tax. The Republican party disagrees with Bauer's proposal.
