NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gov. Phil Bredesen is preparing to unveil new legislation aimed at improving Tennessee's energy efficiency standards.

The Democratic governor's proposal follows a series of statewide meetings of a 16-member energy task force to find ways to overhaul Tennessee's energy policy.

The panel's recommendations included stricter energy standards for state buildings and vehicles, creating jobs in the clean energy technology sector and promoting residential energy efficiency.

Bredesen was scheduled to present his legislative proposal at the state Capitol on Tuesday afternoon.
