Illinois Governor Supports More Ethanol

fps13-govDuring a stop at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois last week, Governor Pat Quinn was asked about his support of ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard.

“I drive a car that believes in renewable fuels and I think it’s important for the governor to get the word out that we have to not be dependent on foreign potentates for our oil,” Quinn told reporters. “We have lots of opportunity in our own backyard to grow our own fuel.”

The governor would like to see more E15 fueling cars on the road. “We’d like to move it up to E15, that will help our Illinois farmers and help reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” said Quinn.
