Thank you @SenatorFischer and @SenDuckworth for introducing bipartisan legislation to help restore transparency and integrity to the abusive small refinery exemption process, especially at a time when #biofuel producers and corn farmers need it most. growthenergy.org/2019/06/14/bip…

Today is #FlagDay - a day to celebrate the adoption of our nation's flag and honor those who serve to defend it. #Ethanol producers are proud to employ more veterans than any other segment of the energy sector, and we are thankful for their service. https://t.co/ftc1bjpOvc
