I’m proud to stand up for our farmers and producers as a @GrowthEnergy Biofuels Champion. Our biofuels provide good-paying jobs and the clean energy that keeps America running — when they’re strong, Iowa is strong. #IA01 https://t.co/96cepXXW0T
Representative @daveloebsack took time to advocate for biofuels in the House Committee for Energy and Commerce yesterday. We need oversight like this to ensure gap-filings from the oil industry don't become another source of harm for our producers. Thank you, Congressman! https://t.co/JRDYxzgq67
I spoke with @GrowthEnergy about the need for everyone to understand just how important renewable fuels are for Iowa's farmers and our nation. WATCH: https://t.co/Ik7Eu4Iry0
