Biofuels Vision 2020 launched a new ad campaign in Iowa this week expressing concern about the Trump administration’s track record on biofuels, which has become a major focus of debate in key Midwest political races.
Display and social media ads will run over the next three weeks, highlighting that “rural America is under siege by Trump’s EPA” and calling on the president to keep his promises to Iowa corn and soybean farmers.
“Rural communities face historic economic hardship in the wake of COVID-19, trade wars, and years of regulatory abuse,” said Biofuels Vision 2020 member Daryl Haack, a corn farmer in Primghar, Iowa and member of the board of Little Sioux Corn Processors. “We are not going to sit idly by and watch the Trump EPA sabotage the very foundation of our rural recovery. Iowans can’t afford to pay the price for any more backdoor handouts to well-connected oil companies.”
Biofuels Vision 2020 is a coalition of organizations and individuals committed to educating candidates in both parties about the production and use of renewable fuels in the United States.
