The State of Pennsylvania is decidedly taking a step forward in the cause for biofuels. Secretary Kathleen A. McGinty told members of the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee this week that using greater amounts of biofuels derived from corn, soybeans, coal and biomass will reduce Pennsylvania's dependence on foreign oil while growing the economy.
There are a few states that continue to pop up on AutoblogGreen: California, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania (OK, that last one is a commonwealth). This means that, either, a.) they are moving furiously on green car initiatives or b.) they have well-run PR offices. I suspect it's a bit of both, but whatever the reason, there's more news out of Pennsylvania.
