Celebrated the nation's second #E15 standard with @RFNebraska's Dawn Caldwell and Traci Menke. Thank you for your work getting #LB562 signed into law. Nebraskan families will see savings at the pump this summer! cc: @LadyOfAg

Thank you, Governor @TeamPillen and our supporters in the Nebraska legislature for signing into law the Adopt the E15 Access Standard Act. We're excited to see the governor be one of rural America's most effective biofuels champions.

I’m proud to work with my friend and @WaysandMeansGOP colleague @RepLaHood to hold Brazil accountable for its unfair and costly tariffs on #IA04 farmers and ethanol producers. The Biden Administration needs to get its act together and defend our family farmers and rural economy.
