"Obama To Outline Biofuels Strategy"

"President Barack Obama on Wednesday will outline a government strategy to boost development of U.S. biofuels and address their environmental challenges, an administration official said.

The strategy will be laid out in a report titled 'Growing America's Fuel' by the Biofuels Interagency Working Group, a body the president established to help spur investment in biofuels and make the industry more environmentally friendly.

Obama and members of his cabinet are scheduled to meet on Wednesday with a handful of state governors to discuss energy policy and the 'opportunities and challenges presented by the transition to a clean energy economy,' the official said."
