South Dakota Corn Executive Disappointed With Anti Ethanol Bill

South Dakota Corn Executive Disappointed With Anti Ethanol Bill

 

Thursday, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Tom Coburn introduced the Corn Ethanol Mandate Elimination Act of 2013. The measure eliminates the corn ethanol requirement within the Renewable Fuel Standard.  South Dakota Corn Growers Executive Director Lisa Richardson says while this attack on ethanol was expected, all the current mandate does is give the corn industry equal access to the fuel market.

Senator Coburn says the corn ethanol mandate has cost taxpayers billions of dollars, increased fuel prices and made food more expensive. Richardson disagrees with that assessment.

The Coburn Feinstein legislation also cites the impending blend wall as another reason for eliminating the ethanol mandate.
