NY Senate Candidate Unveils Fuel Plan

September 30, 2004

ALBANY, N.Y.—New York Republican Senate candidate Howard Mills unveiled a national energy plan Tuesday that would use government subsidies to encourage the use of alternate fuel sources, according to news sources.Under the Mills energy plan, subsidies would be available for the replacement of MTBE in gasoline with ethanol, using bio-diesel as a supplemental to diesel fuel, developing fuel cell technology and expanding the use of solar and wind power. Mills said his energy plan would cost $3.8 billion and be paid for by reducing federal government waste and by cutting spending on federal programs he said were no longer needed, such as the Rural Utilities Service. Mills has pretty big task ahead of him before he can implement his plan—winning the election. A statewide poll released earlier this month by Marist College's Institute for Public Opinion had incumbent Charles Schumer leading Mills, 65 percent to 17 percent.
