Citing concerns about national security, dependence on foreign oil imports and economic growth, Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell (D) outlined a wide range of energy proposals yesterday during a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. As his state moves forward with initiatives to promote coal gasification, hybrid cars and biofuels, Rendell also called on the White House to implement some of his ideas. Plus, he discussed what it will take from the Bush administration and members of Congress to make his proposals a reality.
