News flash: Secretary Salazar to stay at Interior
The word from Denver is that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has decided not to run for governor of Colorado. This is good news for wind energy advocates, as Salazar has been a major force in the Obama Administration's pro-wind policies. Just this week, for example, he set a deadline for deciding on the fate of the Cape Wind project offshore Cape Cod. Earlier decisions have been aimed at streamlining the decision process for citing wind on federal lands, including the Outer Continental Shelf.
