OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Officials with several automobile manufacturers are meeting in Oklahoma City to discuss a request for proposal from nearly two dozen states for the nation's auto makers to produce natural gas-powered vehicles for state fleets.

The manufacturers are meeting Wednesday at the Oklahoma History Center and will discuss the multistate RFP with procurement experts and hear a presentation from Gov. Mary Fallin.

Fallin and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have led the effort to get auto manufacturers to produce more affordable vehicles that run on compressed natural gas. Twenty-two states have expressed support of the RFP.

Fallin says the objective behind the effort is to let the manufacturers "know that states mean business and are strongly committed to the use of CNG vehicles in state fleets."
