ICGA Thanks Representative Miller Meeks for Her Support of Flex Fuel Vehicles

The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) applauds the introduction of the Flex Fuels Fairness Act by Representative Miller-Meeks. Once enacted, this legislation would encourage automakers to produce more flex fuel vehicles (FFVs), and levels the playing field for FFVs by properly recognizing the emissions benefits associated with using E85 flex fuels, containing between 51-83 percent ethanol.

“This legislation recognizes the significant emission benefits of using higher blends of ethanol, which ultimately is great for contributing to a low carbon, cleaner and more sustainable transportation sector for all.” said Jolene Riessen, a farmer from Ida Grove, Iowa, and Iowa Corn Growers Association President. “By encouraging automakers to produce more FFVs, it’s a win-win for all of Iowa and consumers nationwide. Consumers have more choices at the pump to fuel up with higher blends of ethanol, specifically E85, which in turn creates increased demand for Iowa corn farmers.”
