ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Secretary Vilsak also talked about how biofuels can help our region's economy.

He visited the First United Ethanol Plant in Mitchell County Monday afternoon. He says plants like that create jobs and reduce the country's dependence on imported oil.

"We have created a comprehensive approach with additional research, assistance for bio-refinery construction, assistance for those processors and money for farmers and producers who are producing those feed stocks. It's a comprehensive approach to make this and industry that's nationwide," said Secretary Tom Vilsak, Department of Agriculture.

First United Ethanol is owned by 860 investors in rural Georgia and Florida.
