Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis released the following statement in response to a proposal released last night by Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus that would extend critical tax incentives for domestic ethanol.

“We are glad to see that the Senate is taking steps to resolve this important debate and we look forward to working with Congressional members to see it through to the finish. Although the extension for the ethanol tax credits are not as high and as long as we had hoped, an extension today will provide certainty in the market and give Congress the opportunity to consider longer term solutions, like our Fueling Freedom Plan, next year.”
