The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the Virginia House Committee on Commerce and Labor approved legislation yesterday that encourages the creation of a state energy plan, including identification of appropriate sites for LNG facilities. The bill’s sponsor, Delegate L.

A similar measure has been approved by the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor. [Print edition only]
