Urges objection to Enviornmental Protection plan

November 8, 2019
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

To the Editor:

Iowans need to speak up for our farmers, and against federal policies that endanger Iowa agriculture, our biofuels industry and our rural economy.

A proposed rule from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could cripple rural America by weakening the Renewable Fuel Standard.

It also would be another broken promise; the EPA rule is contrary to an ethanol plan announced in early October by the Trump Administration.

Iowa farmers are worried about these mixed messages out of Washington, D.C.-especially after ongoing trade wars and bad weather, which have created extra challenges.

The Iowa Corn Growers and other commodity groups object to the EPA's plan.

I encourage all Iowans farmers and non-farmers to join a quick and easy public comment initiative by the National Corn Growers Association.

Before November 29, Iowans can go to ncga.com/public-policy/stand-up-for-corn/take-action and send messages in support of farmers and the biofuels industry to President Trump, U.S. Senator Ernst and other federal officials.
