Draxler believes natural gas is the answer

The 2010 session of the Utah Legislature opens Monday with a revenue shortfall of around 700 million dollars. State representative Jack Draxler says he expects another very tough session. For some time Draxler has been working with the EPA to try and speed up the process of converting vehicles to compressed natural gas. He says not only would it be cheaper, it would reduce our dependency on imported oil. He says the state has a lot of technicians who have studied and installed natural gas conversion kits. Draxler says House Bill 70, Certification of Retrofit Compressed Natural Gas Vehicles, would help move things along. Draxler says his bill has no fiscal note and believes it would help get rid of those red air days in Cache Valley.
