Iowa Farm Bureau Federation statement on developing Iowa biofuels standard
The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau Federation President Craig Hill:
"The Iowa Farm Bureau applauds Governor Reynolds’ efforts to set a biofuels standard in Iowa. By raising the floor for biofuel blends and increasing the percentage of ethanol and biodiesel sold in Iowa, we can create growth opportunities in renewable fuels for our rural communities and farmers.
This is a proven approach that has worked for decades in other Midwestern states, and it is imperative that Iowa, the national leader in biofuels production, catches up with our neighboring states in enacting policies promoting biofuel sales.
Farm Bureau members look forward to working with the Governor and Iowa legislature to move Iowa’s biofuels policies forward."
