The Joint Committee on Government and Finance (Committee) must conduct two separate studies related to alternative fuels. The first study must focus on the impact of alternative fuels on West Virginia's economy, specifically the use of alternative fuels in transportation. This report must include input from state agencies and private industry. The second study must investigate the environmental benefits and economic impact of renewable energy utilization, including the use of biofuels in vehicles, and the potential for a state Renewable Energy Act or similar policy. The Committee must report its findings, conclusions, and recommendations to the state legislature in 2011.It must also draft any regulations necessary to carry out its recommendations.
