Trump Admin Announces Ethanol Mandate Compromise After Corn Country Complaints

"Sherlyn Alcock" (2019-10-08)


After a drop in government mandates led to a lag in market demand for corn and corn-based car fuel, the Trump administration announced a deal Friday to prop the industry back up. An EPA news release sent out Friday stated that the administration has worked out an arrangement regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard — also called the ethanol mandate — meant to help support plant-based fuel production. Under the new agreement, the release explained, the EPA and Department of Agriculture will take multiple actions. The EPA will take steps to "ensure that more than 15 billion gallons of conventional ethanol be blended into the nation's fuel supply beginning in 2020," along with starting the regulatory process to streamline the sale of E15 fuel year-round. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue hailed the announcement as a win for farmers and rural Americans. The news comes after complaints that EPA-issued ethanol mandate waivers to small fuel refineries had created a drop in market demand for corn and biofuel, which in turn led to stalled production at multiple biofuel plants. The ethanol mandate was passed during the George W. Bush administration with the stated goal of reducing emissions and reducing American dependence on foreign energy sources. Critics of the ethanol mandate say that it's not only unnecessary given current American energy production, but that it also increases engine corrosion and distorts the price of beef due to the increased scarcity of cattle feed. Nevertheless, the fuel mandate is big business in states that produce a lot of corn or biofuel, and therefore enjoys a lot of political support in those states. One of the most vocal critics of the EPA waivers in Congress was Sen. On Friday, Grassley announced his satisfaction with the new mandate deal. Grassley said in a statement. Grassley's junior counterpart, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said.



We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. I want to be part of the solution. What the 'ordinary' person does is critical here. South Africa can and WILL encourage, inspire and bless the world. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. In his various writings Craig attempts in some small way to advance the cause of peace. He is currently "working" on his latest manuscript - a "novel", yet a true story of transformation … from hatred to love in the cauldron of the Middle East titled ‘From Seeds of Hate to the Bonds of Love’.

Theres no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you. Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate; now whats going to happen to us with both a Senate and a House?



I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat. I dont make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts. The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best. The income tax has made more liars out of the American people than golf has. On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does. The man with the best job in the country is the Vice President. An economists guess is liable to be as good as anybody elses. Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing -- and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even.



If stupidity got us into this mess, then why cant it get us out? Be thankful were not getting all the government were paying for. Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. Diplomacy is the art of saying Nice doggie until you can find a rock. A fool and his money are soon elected. About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation. Our Constitution protects aliens, drunks, and U.S. Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do. Diplomats are just as essential to starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it You take diplomacy out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week.
