This week, Maryland congressman Steny Hoyer drove the HydrogGen3, a
vehicle based GM's
Zafira (a regular Zafira is pictured). The test drive at the Walker Pontiac-Buick-GMC
in Bowie, Maryland, is the spearhead to Hoyer's plans to introduce the PROGRESS Act in Congress. The comprehensive energy bill, among its provisions, would establish a National Energy Security Commission and advocate rail transportation. Hoyer states that current federal energy polices based on more oil-drilling are "short-sighted" and only by embracing new technologies and
at a national level can the U.S. achieve energy independence.
