WASHINGTON, DC — Following the confirmation hearing today for Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad to be U.S. Ambassador to China, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement:

“Gov. Branstad has been an incredible ally and champion of the American ethanol industry, and having him as our Ambassador to China would be an important step forward in helping re-open the Chinese marketplace to American ethanol and distiller’s grains.

“We are eager for his confirmation and hope the Senate will confirm him quickly.”
