Beshear Wants Energy Plan For Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear is planning a new
energy policy for Kentucky he says should rely more on coal and aim
at creating new jobs and renewable power sources.

Beshear says he expects Energy and Environment Secretary Len
Peters to have the report finished by September. The Democratic
governor says he wants the plan, among other things, to suggest
ways for reducing Kentucky's reliance on energy and increase coal
production in the state.

Beshear says he also wants Kentucky to rely more on renewable
energy such as wind and solar sources. Beshear says the state
should find ways to make Kentucky coal "cleaner and greener."
