|WASHINGTON, D.C. —Today in Iowa, President Trump announced he was “very close” on delivering E15 year-round. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement in response to the President’s comments:
“We are pleased to hear President Trump say he is ‘very close’ to making E15 available year round, fulfilling his promise to America’s farmers. Increased access to US markets will provide America’s farmers with some financial confidence, and we hope that President Trump will direct the EPA to act quickly to provide year-round RVP relief.”
Growth Energy, the nation’s top ethanol advocate, is running a television ad asking President Trump to uphold his promise to farmers by allowing the sale of E15 year-round. Watch here.

Here’s a quote that sums things up: “We are sick of the runaround on the E15,” said Kevin Ross, an Iowa farmer from Pottawattamie County, which Trump won with 58 percent of the vote. “This is something that has gone on way too long.”
