The USDA says five regional biofuels research centers would be created. The centers, a collaboration between the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and the U.S. Forest Service (FS), would be established at:

* Northeast Center -- Madison, Wis., led by the Forest Service

* Central East Center -- UNL, led by ARS

* Southeast Center - Boonesville, Ark., and Tifton, Ga., (both ARS) and in Auburn, Ala. (FS)

* Western Center -- Maricopa, Ariz.

* Northwestern Center -- Pullman, Wash., (ARS) and Corvallis, Ore. (FS)

Funds are also to be made available to assist in the construction of new biorefineries, starting in 2011. One refinery would be built in each of the regions serviced by the new biomass research centers, but no locations were announced.
