Gov. Bush to sign energy law in Tampa today

By Times Staff
Published June 19, 2006

Gov. Jeb Bush is coming to Tampa today to sign the Florida Energy Act and help launch Tampa's first ethanol production facility.

The event will be at 12:55 p.m. at the Tampa Port Authority, 4808 Pendola Point Road. The Florida Energy Act is a $30-million plan to diversify the state's fuel supply. It offers rebates, grants and tax incentives to encourage investment in renewable energy sources, such as solar, hydrogen and biofuels. U.S. EnviroFuels plans for its $78-million facility to begin operations in the fall of 2007.

At the signing, Bush will be joined by state Sen. Lee Constantine, R-Altamonte Springs; state Rep. Adam Hasner, R-Delray Beach; Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Colleen Castille; Tampa Port Authority chairman Joseph Diaz; U.S. EnviroFuels executive Brad Krohn; and other state and local officials.
