With its distribution infrastructure and proximity to agriculture, Memphis is ideally located to be the alternative fuel production and distribution capital of North America. Biodiesel and Ethanol can be foundation of an economic development effort that brings new industry and jobs to the city for decades to come. However, Tennessee lags behind all other states in this region for offering economic incentives to foster this industrial sector. I will work to bring this city and state to the forefront of alternative fuels, which will create prosperity as well as a cleaner environment.
