This week in our “Conversations with Biofuel Champions” summer video series, our CEO Emily Skor had the opportunity to visit with one of our newest biofuel champions: U.S. Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer of Iowa.

Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer was elected in 2018 to represent Iowa’s First Congressional District. As Finkenauer tells Skor, she wanted to serve in Congress to make sure the stories of her district were being told in Washington, including those of farmers, ag equipment manufacturers, and biofuel producers.

As a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, Finkenauer shares how important it is to invest in rural infrastructure and expand access to E15 for not only Iowa, but states across the country who are looking at biofuels to achieve their clean transportation goals.

Watch the ten-minute conversation between Congresswoman Finkenauer and Emily Skor here or by clicking on the image below.

In case you missed it, last week, Skor spoke with U.S. Senator Joni Ernst about her work in the Senate to protect the RFS. Watch it here.

Next week, we’ll hear from U.S. Representative Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) about what he’s hearing from Kansans in the First District. Be sure to tune in!
