Oregon Governor Calls on Congress to Boost Vehicle Fuel Efficiency
LAND - Gov. Ted Kulongoski called on Congress on Monday to boost the fuel efficiency of cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles.
Kulongoski held a news conference with members of the Oregon State Public Interest Research Group to highlight his letter to Oregon's congressional delegation, urging its support for ongoing efforts to set a 33 miles per gallon efficiency standard by 2016.
The Democratic governor said Congress' approval of the standards was the "single most important thing it can do to reduce our dependence on imported oil."
One of the themes Kulongoski has chosen for his re-election campaign is his emphasis on plans for making Oregon less reliant on polluting or environmentally unsustainable energy resources.
