Bush Speech Seen Promoting Ethanol, Efficiency, Technology
WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--U.S. President George W. Bush in his State of the Union address on Tuesday is likely to promote fuel efficient vehicles, ethanol and new technologies as a way to address global warming and reduce the country's dependence on oil, officials said Friday.
White House aides have maintained that energy will be one of the central themes in the annual address before Congress, along with the Iraq war, health care, immigration and education issues.
The White House has refused to release specifics about the speech. But spokesman Tony Snow said Thursday that "this president believes deeply in the importance of trying to innovate our way out of a situation where we've been dependent on an oil source that can render us insecure."
