ICGA LEADERS TESTIFY AT EPA HEARING - JEFF JARBOE COMMENTS

Jun, 25, 2015

Illinois corn farmers were among hundreds in Kansas City today reminding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of their obligation to support corn-based ethanol in our nation's fuel supply as directed by Congress in the Renewable Fuel Standard. Just a block away from the Rally for Rural America where Midwestern farmers gathered to support corn-based ethanol, Illinois Corn Growers Association President Kenneth Hartman, Jr. and Vice-President Jeff Jarboe testified to EPA that the Agency must adhere to the statutory requirements for conventional biofuels.
