After a full day of visiting the offices of more than 120 members of Congress, attendees of the American Coalition for Ethanol annual DC Fly-in were greeted by Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-IA) at their reception Tuesday evening.
The congressman is a strong supporter of the ethanol industry in his district and state and agrees with ACE members that the Small Refinery Exemptions (SREs) that have been granted by EPA are harming producers and farmers. “We need to reallocate those gallons as best we can,” said Loebsack, adding that EPA needs to be more accountable. “It’s really a matter of holding their feet to the fire.”
In this interview, Loebsack also comments on the flooding situation in Iowa.
