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.

.@EmilySkor continued, “There is an urgent need to address the lack of transparency over small refinery exemptions, and reallocate the 2.6 billion lost gallons of #biofuels demand as a result of these continued handouts to oil refineries.” (3/3)
