Pence Says He Would Consider All Energy Options As Governor

Mike Pence announced Tuesday what he says is the biggest tax cut

Republican Mike Pence said Tuesday he would pursue an “all of the above” energy policy as governor in an address to the annual Indiana Conference on Energy Management.

Pence said the state‘s embrace of alternative fuels should be limited by what the market will support. He said he would  work with universities to make their energy research commercially workable and give gas stations liability protection to put their weight behind ethanol.

“There are reforms that could be enacted that would encourage more gas stations to make ethanol and biodiesel available at the pump, and then it can meet the market test,” he said.

Pence told the conference Indiana should also add nuclear power to its energy mix. Democratic rival John Gregg addresses the conference Wednesday.
