WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy, the nation’s top ethanol advocate, issued the following statement from CEO Emily Skor after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) announced it’s short-term relief strategy for farmers:

“Once again, this administration has missed an opportunity to provide long-term relief to farmers by increasing domestic demand through RVP relief. Allowing year-round sales of higher blend fuels such as E15 is one way to address sales lost because of new tariffs and provide increased certainty for farmers and producers. We will continue encouraging the President and his administration to uphold his promise of supporting farmers and rural Americans by following through on allowing the year-round sale of higher blend fuels.”

Growth Energy is running a television ad asking President Trump to uphold his promise to farmers by allowing the sale of E15 year-round. Watch here.

I joined @SenJohnThune @ChuckGrassley @SenJoniErnst @SenatorFischer & @RoyBlunt in a letter to @realDonaldTrump to request the EPA change its proposed rule to restore integrity to the Renewable Fuel Standard. 15 billion gallons means 15 billion gallons. https://t.co/veBkthgGki

Reminder to all Iowans: The deadline to submit public comments on the @EPA’s supplemental rule is Nov. 29. 15 billion gallons means 15 billion gallons, and Iowa’s farmers and producers are counting on it. Express your support for upholding the #RFS here: https://t.co/R3MA4qz3s8
