Former Florida Governor and U.S. presidential candidate Jeb Bush speaks during the Heritage Action for America presidential candidate forum in GreenvilleBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican U.S. presidential candidate Jeb Bush will lay out energy policy proposals on Tuesday that seek to spur job growth and take aim at President Barack Obama’s plan to limit carbon emissions from power plants. In a speech at Rice Energy Inc., in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, Bush will give yet another detailed policy speech on what he would try to accomplish if elected president in November 2016. It is part of an extended campaign approach by the former Florida governor to present himself as a conservative policy heavyweight as he attempts to make up ground to Donald Trump, who has been leading in opinion polls ahead of the Republican presidential nomination.
