The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) will hold its 11th annual Washington, D.C. Fly-in and Government Affairs Summit April 2-3 this year.
“Ethanol producers are experiencing economic stress due to artificial limits on demand and we have more policy irons in the fire than ever before. Given these stakes, we encourage ethanol supporters to mark their calendars for the ACE fly-in and join us April 2 and 3 in D.C.,” said Brian Jennings, ACE CEO. “More than 100 new Members of Congress recently took their oaths of office and it is up to us to make sure they understand the importance and value of a strong U.S. ethanol industry.”
The meetings will take place at the Liaison Capitol Hill hotel and on Capitol Hill. Fly-in attendees will meet with Trump administration officials to emphasize the importance of completing a legally defensible Reid vapor pressure (RVP) rule for E15 before the 2019 summer driving season and argue for reallocation of the waived gallons from the Renewable Fuel Standard through refinery waivers. Participants will also advocate for increasing ethanol demand through low-carbon and high-octane policies.
