COLUMBIA — Retiring Missouri Sen. Kit Bond hosts a campus forum on Monday to promote clean energy as a way to boost the state's economy.
The round-table talk will include state and local officials, university leaders, business owners and agricultural industry representatives. The 10 a.m. event takes place in the Bond Life Sciences Center, which is named for Missouri's senior senator.
Bond says Missouri is poised to "create a new biomass industry" due to its abundant supplies of timber, timber waste, grass and other natural resources.
