"SALEM — The Columbiana County Port Authority has cleared another step in its plan to buy land for a facility that would turn coal into liquid fuel.

A $4.5 million loan has been approved by the state Development Financing Advisory Council with the support of Gov. Ted Strickland and local legislators."

Why not, Mike, WV - especially when WV's US Senators Randolph and Byrd, waaaay back in the day (remember, ole Jen was puttering about WV's skies in a coal-powered airplane in the 1940's) got the Synthetic Fuels legislation kick-started?
