Bill Would Require Part of Nation's Fuel be Derived from Coal

Some of the nation's fuels would be required to contain a minimum volume derived from coal under a bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Republican Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia said Thursday that using coal to produce fuels for vehicles, machinery and aircraft would further reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil. She says it also would create good-paying jobs and increase the nation's energy security.

Democrat Nick Rahall is a co-sponsor of the bill.
