ALBANY, GA (WALB) - U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson says he wants to focus on renewable energy and righting the housing problems in the United States.

Isakson announced plans to run for re-election in 2010 to Albany and Dougherty County leaders in front of Plant Mitchell Wednesday afternoon. He wants Georgia to get more involved in renewable energy initiatives to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Isakson says Plant Mitchell's planned conversion from burning coal to biomass is a good example.

"New technologies to get cleaner more reliable carbon less energy that's more efficient and also creates jobs, which this plant will do for those who grow the fuel that ends up being burnt to operate the plant," said Sen. Johnny Isakson, (R)-Georgia.

Isakson said he also wants to focus on tax reform. He believes his proposal of a tax credit for homeowners could help the struggling housing industry. Isakson also made stops in Augusta and Columbus Wednesday.
