Governor Matt Blunt hits the road, visiting five Missouri cities, as he promotes his proposal to require gasoline sold in Missouri to contain 10 percent ethanol. First stop: Jefferson City, where the Governor spoke of the benefits, which include the creation of markets for Missouri corn growers. He adds greater use of ethanol would lessen dependence on foreign sources of energy. Blunt says Missouri would be the fourth state to require a 10 percent ethanol blend – behind Minnesota, Montana, and Hawaii. Legislation to require the ethanol blend is before the General Assembly.
