Sept. 18: Fuels America, of which the National Corn Growers Association is one of the founding members, launched an educational program in Washington this week highlighting the importance of the Renewable Fuel Standard. The program, which highlights the benefits of the RFS, includes messaging that carpets Metro stations most traveled by policymakers and their staff.
“The RFS is important not only for corn farmers but also for our nation as we move toward a more energy secure, environmentally sound future,” said NCGA President Pam Johnson. “When people understand the incredible alternative ethanol offers, they embrace it as a way to keep out-of-control gas prices in check while cleaning our air and reducing our dependence on foreign oil. Now, whether commuting to work or just heading across town, the precise people who influence our nation’s energy policy will be confronted with the critical importance of preserving the RFS and our nation’s energy future.”
