While Growth Energy’s advocacy push in the Midwest continues to ramp up, we’re also making noise in the Beltway to ensure the president hears our industry loud and clear. Today’s editions of The New York Times, The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal for the D.C. markets feature a full-page Growth Energy ad that is an open letter to the president urging him to unleash rural growth by cutting the red tape holding back homegrown energy.” It also condemns Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt’s actions that are “destroying demand for biofuels and crops during the worst farm crisis since the 1980s.” The full-page ads were placed by Growth Energy ahead of an expected meeting with farm-state champions and petroleum backers at the White House this week. The letter was signed by Growth Energy member plants from 18 states.
