Denver (AP) The governors of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming are asking President Barack Obama to fund the development of clean-coal technologies in the west.

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal said in a letter yesterday to Obama that finding a cleaner way to use coal is vital for reducing emissions, promoting national security and create jobs.

They say clean-coal technologies also could be used in rapidly industrializing nations such as China and India.

The governors say the energy policy act of 2005 provided for federal cost sharing for a clean-coal demonstration project from coal mined in the west but that it was never funded.
