Jobs, taxes paid, a cleaner environment and improved public health are several of the benefits to Michigan from the expanding number of clean-fuel vehicles, according to a new report sponsored by Clean Fuels Michigan
, a Lansing-based group of 30 companies associated with the energy, automotive and environmental markets.
The 35-page report
prepared by Lansing-based Public Sector Consultants
says Michigan's 29,000 jobs directly tied to clean-fuel vehicles could grow substantially in the next decade as the number of those vehicles increases. The report estimates the number of indirect jobs supported by the clean-fuel industry now number 69,000.
