This article reports that to boost domestic oil production, the U.S. President George W. Bush has proposed constructing petroleum refineries on the U.S. military bases that have been closed. If approved by the U.S. Congress, the new facilities would be the first refineries built here in 30 years. Bush says regulators would ease permit rules for that construction. In an April 27 speech to a small- business conference, Bush also revived a 2002 plan to spend $1.1 billion over seven years to construct nuclear power plants.
