Alternative fuel is major priority on the "Sonny Do List"

September 26, 2006

Tifton--Saving you money at the gas pump is one of Governor Sonny Perdue's top priority.

Today in Tifton, Perdue announced a plan for a state sales tax exemption on materials and equipment used to build bio-fuel facilities in Georgia.

The exemption would be available to facilities that produced bio-fuels from Georgia-grown products.

Perdue hopes the incentive will encourage companies that produce alternative fuels to come to this region.

"We've got great agricultural products, land, we've got great sun shine, water resources that will allow us to grow our way out of energy dependence," says Perdue.

Also today, Perdue announced that Bulldog Bio-diesel will soon set up shop in Clayton County and begin producing alternative fuels.
