Michigan Reactions to State of the Union
The Detroit News reports that President Bush focused heavily on the auto industry in his State of the Union address, calling for a major increase in federal research dollars to develop clean energy sources, including ethanol, electric and other nonpetroleum fuels. Although funds called for were relatively small, Ford CEO Bill Ford Jr. praised the commitment. Some critics, including Sen. Carl Levin criticized the proposal as inadequate. Dan Seligman of the Apollo Alliance (an organization that backs a national energy research program on the scale of the moon-exploration effort) asked about the massive investment required to retool for alternative fuels.
