Cornyn Says He’s Trying to Find “Consensus” on RINs Issue

Texas’ other senator claims he is “working hard to try and find some consensus” on the issue of Renewable Identification Number (RIN) prices, but Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) has pretty much the same attitude that Sen. Ted Cruz has when it comes to ethanol.

“I’ve been working on a bi-partisan basis with allies in the Senate to see if we can come up with something that will address the concerns of the corn state senators and senators like me who come from oil and gas states who are concerned that this is an unsustainable mandate,” said Cornyn in a phone interview this week with All Ag News. “This is a very delicate negotiation and we are trying to address the needs of all the stakeholders in a way that will be successful and return the fuel supply to a market-based demand economy and not one involving government mandates.”
