The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) has set the dates for its annual Washington, DC fly-in: March 23-23 2017. The ethanol industry will gather at Liaison Hotel on Capitol Hill prior to hitting the pavement.
“ACE’s 2017 fly-in occurs during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, a time when President-elect Trump will begin to prioritize his campaign promises into action,” said ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings. “Our fly-in will give ethanol advocates a timely opportunity to remind Trump administration officials about his promise to make sure that EPA restores Renewable Fuel Standard blending levels to match the statute.”
Jennings added, “Given the decisive victory rural America helped deliver on Election Day, it is vitally important for corn farmers and biofuel advocates to sign-up for ACE’s fly-in and educate our newly-elected office-holders about how high-octane ethanol can help jump-start economic growth in the U.S. We encourage people from all walks of life who have an interest in the future of ethanol to join us in DC March 22-23.”
