This week in our “Conversations with Biofuels Champions” summer video series, our CEO Emily Skor visited with one of our top champs in the House of Representatives: U.S. Congresswoman Cheri Bustos of Illinois.
Born in Springfield, Illinois, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos comes from a long line of farmers and teachers and a deep appreciation for being part of a community. Following in her father’s footsteps, Bustos started her career in news business before being elected to Congress in 2013 to represent Illinois’ 17th Congressional District.
In the 116th Congress, Bustos was appointed to the House Appropriations Committee. Bustos also continues to serve on the House Agriculture Committee, where she played a vital role in crafting the Farm Bill.
We’re grateful for Congresswoman Bustos’ continued support during her time in Congress and working to provide greater certainty for biofuels today and in the future. Watch the conversation between Congresswoman Bustos and Emily Skor here or by clicking on the image below.
In case you missed it, last week, Skor spoke with Congressman Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) about the critical role ethanol markets play in Kansas’ rural economy. Watch it here.
Next week, we’ll hear from Congressman Rodney Davis (R-Ill.). Be sure to tune in!
