Groutage and Thomas Disagree Over Coal to Diesel Efforts

Laramie, Wy – The Democratic candidate for U-S Senate says incumbent Craig Thomas has failed the state by not bringing in money to build a coal to diesel plant.
Dale Groutage says creating gas and diesel from coal is key to creating energy independence. And he says Senator Thomas has had his opportunity to attract a plant to the state.
In response Senator Thomas' spokesperson says that there are several companies looking to build coal to diesel plants in Wyoming. And those companies are benefiting from federal financing that Thomas helped arrange.
