ICGA STATEMENT ON EPA'S RELEASE OF SUPPLEMENTAL PROPOSAL FOR RENEWABLE FUELS VOLUMES
After time to read and consider the Environmental Protection Agency’s Supplemental Proposal for Renewable Fuels Volumes released yesterday, Illinois Corn Growers Association President Ted Mottaz, a farmer from Elmwood, Ill., issued the following statement:
“Illinois corn farmers are frustrated with the proposed rule released yesterday to say the least. We are not sure what’s going on in Washington, D.C., but there is a disconnect between the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency. President Trump has made promises to farmers and the EPA seems very uninterested in keeping those promises.
“It’s harvest time in Illinois. We don’t have time to spend urging the Administration to follow the statute and court orders. It’s past time to get this right and follow the law.”
