Thank you to all the participants of the 6th Annual ROD (Reduce Oil Dependency) Day. A special thanks to Wisconsin Senator Dan Kapanke for participating. We hope your interest in promoting CNG vehicles and refueling in Western Wisconsin will flourish.
We had participants from voters in Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois. We hope some Minnesotans will contact me to receive details on the 3 pronged efforts that we are making in the area of reducing oil dependency.
Contact your state Senators and Representatives to advocate statewide incentive for new and pre-owned (OEM) hybrid cars, CNG and Neighborhood Electric Vehicles. We discussed state tax credits for the above vehicles as well as commercial CNG refueling. We advocated state road tax elimination on CNG until after 10,000 CNG vehicles are registered in any calendar year. This will motivate constituents to invest before the marketplace is large enough to make economic sense for installing road tax on useage. There are many reasons why these vehicles will provide green jobs in our states as well as reducing our oil dependency. Please contact me for additional details on these specifics.
Also, contact Steve Loehr at Kwik Trip to encourage the installation of commercial CNG refueling at the 5th & Cass Street location in La Crosse which is scheduled for remodeling in 2009. This will push the western boundary of CNG refueling along Interstate 90. His contact information is the following:

Please contact Steve Ellis at American Honda to commend and encourage the continuation and increase in research/development as well as production of hybrid cars, CNG cars, ultra clean diesel vehicles and the stunning Honda Clarity - hydrogen-powered fuel cell car. The marketplace has not always invested in the energy efficient and environmentally sensitive vehicles that Honda has developed, manufactured and marketed. I believe that Mr. Pickens would be the first person to agree with that statement considering his investment in Fuelmaker.
