COLUMBIA — Gov. Matt Blunt will be in Columbia today to discuss his proposal for a 5 percent biodiesel standard.

The proposal, also known as Senate Bill 759, would require diesel fuel sold in Missouri to contain 5 percent biodiesel fuel by April 1, 2010.

The bill, which Blunt championed during his State of the State address, was approved by a Senate agriculture committee last month.

The news conference will be at 2:45 p.m. today in the Grissum Building, 1313 Lakeview Ave.
