Western governors unveil 10-year energy 'vision'

Updated:

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Western governors have unveiled a regional 10-year energy "vision" that stresses cooperation among states in interstate projects such as transmission lines, increased oil production and modernization of pipeline infrastructure.

At the same time, the document released by the Western Governors Association calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting wildlife and supporting technologies that reduce water demand.

The Deseret News reports governors also discussed education and health care reform efforts during their 3-day meeting, which ended Sunday in Park City.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, chairman of the association, says the energy plan stems from bipartisan cooperation and represents a first step toward a blueprint for the entire country that promotes economic growth while protecting the environment.
