Danville, VA -- Senator Mark Warner visited the Southside Friday.
He started his day in South Boston and then came to Danville. Warner spoke about an initiative he introduced Thursday called "State Energy Race to the Top."
This legislation would create a competitive program among states to improve energy productivity. Warner says it would lower energy bills for customers and create jobs.
"This is a way that we can decrease our dependence on foreign oil and also actually make our businesses more competitive," said Warner.
Warner headed to Richmond after he left Danville.
