Gov. Bob McDonnell is promoting legislation that he says will help Virginia become the "energy capital of the East Coast."

McDonnell will add his signature Tuesday to 13 pieces of energy-related legislation. The legislation promotes development of the state's energy resources and supports alternative and renewable energy strategies, according to the governor's office.

McDonnell has promoted an "all-of-the-above" approach to energy development. That includes fossil fuel development such as coal and renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar power.
