The Department of Agriculture will be providing up to $98.6 million to expand research and production of advanced biofuels, says Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. The money would go to eligible biofuel producers to help increase renewable fuel production and create jobs in the biofuels industry. The program is a "key component of President [Barack] Obama's 'all of the above' energy strategy to reduce the nation's reliance on foreign oil," Vilsack said.
