FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – Yesterday, it was reported that Poet, the nation’s largest ethanol producer, would be pausing production at its northwest Iowa plant. John Delaney releases the following statement:
“President Trump’s mismanagement of the EPA has propped up the fossil fuel industry and hurt farmers in Iowa,” said Delaney. “Refusing to enforce the Renewable Fuel Standard means carbon emissions go up and farmland values and prices for ethanol go down. Iowans deserve a president who is committed to RFS and who won’t prioritize big oil refiners over farmers.”
In March, Delaney released his Heartland Fair Deal plan, a comprehensive plan to jumpstart rural America.
