A coalition representing governors of 29 states is urging the federal government to take steps to boost wind energy, such as requiring utilities to produce at least 10 percent of their energy from renewable sources by 2012.

The bipartisan Governors' Wind Energy Coalition plans to make the recommendations Tuesday in a report to Congress and the White House. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the report ahead of its official release.

The coalition, chaired by Iowa Gov. Chet Culver, also urges support for offshore wind development and new infrastructure for electric transmission, among other things.

The report comes as Senate sponsors of a climate bill prepare to unveil their legislation, perhaps as soon as this week.
