WASHINGTON, D.C.—Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement today upon the reintroduction of the Next Generation Fuels Act in the U.S. Senate:

“American-made ethanol already makes a positive impact every day, but we’ve still only scratched the surface of the benefits this renewable fuel can deliver to the environment and to drivers across the country. The Next Generation Fuels Act recognizes that ethanol is the only fuel available today that can be immediately deployed to decrease our nation’s carbon emissions, decrease our reliance on foreign oil, and decrease fuel costs for American families all at once. This legislation would give ethanol a greater role in decarbonizing our economy while decreasing volatility and lowering prices at the pump, and we urge all lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to join Senators Grassley and Klobuchar to see the bill quickly signed into law.”

Protecting #IA04 farmers and #ethanol producers will always be a top priority for me in Congress. I appreciate working with my @WaysandMeansGOP colleague @RepLaHood to ensure American ethanol exports receive fair treatment and robust market access in Brazil. https://t.co/pX246NiqLn
