LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas House approved a bill today that would provide $20 million per year in incentives for alternative fuels.
The proposal was one of House Speaker Benny Petrus' priorities for the session. It would provide $16 million per year for companies to develop the fuels, while the remaining $4 million would be split evenly between research and a weatherization program.
The House voted 98-to-2 in favor of the proposal, which now goes to the Senate.
Representative Aaron Burks, a Republican from Lowell, and Dan Greenberg, a Republican from Little Rock, voted against the bill.
