ICGA Thanks Team Iowa For Standing with Biofuels
JOHNSTON, Iowa – April 27, 2023 – The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) thanks the Iowa congressional delegation of the U.S. House of Representatives for standing up to their party Leadership to support Iowa farmers and the biofuels industry in the negotiations on the House debt limit bill.
Representatives Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Ashley Hinson, Zach Nunn and Randy Feenstra all stood firm with Iowa’s corn farmers and biofuels industry in the debt limit package negotiations to include changes to the bill, specifically to the biofuels and clean energy tax provisions.
“ICGA appreciates the support of the Iowa House Delegation for standing firm with Iowa’s corn farmers on supporting biofuels in recent negotiations. They are true leaders protecting our state rather than toeing the party lines,” said Denny Friest, President of the Iowa Corn Growers Association and a farmer from Radcliffe. “The biofuels and ag industry in Iowa are important for our state’s economy and our rural communities.”
The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) is a 7,000-member strong grassroots-driven organization, headquartered in Johnston, Iowa, serving members across the state, and lobbying on agricultural issues on behalf of its farmer members to create opportunities for long-term Iowa corn grower profitability.
