In addition, Ehrlich announced an incentive program to help develop feedstock for future ethanol production, and the availability of financial credits for producers of certain renewable fuels.

The Washington County Commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to change the county's Building Excise Tax Ordinance by removing the doubling provision for fast-growing subdivisions. Commissioners President Terry Baker cast the dissenting vote, saying he believed the doubling of the excise tax was a "valuable tool" when it was enacted several years ago and that he believes it remains so.
