The Iowa Corn Growers Association commends the Iowa House of Representatives for passing HF 2128, the Governor’s Biofuels Access Bill, by a strong bipartisan vote of 81 to 10 during today’s session. HF 2128 will increase Iowans’ access to cleaner burning, more affordable, homegrown E15/Unleaded 88. The bill is estimated to increase ethanol demand by 60 million gallons annually, utilizing 20.7 million bushels of corn to expand markets for Iowa’s corn farmers.
Below is a statement made by ICGA President and farmer from Vinton Lance Lillibridge:
“ICGA applauds the Iowa House for taking this important first step in making Iowa the national leader on state-level E15 policy. We would like to say a special thank you to Governor Kim Reynolds, House Speaker Pat Grassley, House Minority Leader Jennifer Konfrst and House Ways and Means Chair Lee Hein for their strong leadership in championing biofuels and agriculture and moving this bipartisan legislation forward. We encourage the Iowa Senate to follow-suit by taking action on SSB 3084 as soon as possible to expand E15 access to all Iowans.”
