The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau Federation President Brent Johnson:

“Iowa Farm Bureau members applaud today’s announcement by the EPA allowing the use of E15 fuel for the 2023 summer driving season.

By lifting restrictions, consumers will now have access to this lower-cost option at the gas pump, and the resulting demand for homegrown fuels will support Iowa’s farm families and rural communities, including the 46,000 jobs tied to the biofuels industry.

With Iowa leading the nation in biofuels production, Iowa Farm Bureau members are thankful to Governor Kim Reynolds and the Iowa federal delegation for their continued push of policies that benefits all Iowans.”
