Minnesota Ethanol Champion Addresses ACE

Cindy Zimmerman

Rep. Angie Craig (D-MN) may be from a more suburban area of Minnesota, but she clearly recognizes the value of agriculture and biofuels to her state.

“I care about ethanol because I care about good ag and energy policy in this country,” said Craig during remarks today before the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) conference. “Ethanol drives rural investment, it provides markets for our family farmers and it helps us address climate change.”

As Co-Chair of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus, Craig immediately jumped into action after a federal appeals court struck down an EPA rule that lifted restrictions on the year-round sales of E15 and introduced the Year-Round Fuel Choice Act. “I’m headed back to Washington on Monday and I’m gonna fight like hell to get year-round sales of E15 into the reconciliation bill, I’m going to fight for corn ethanol infrastructure in that infrastructure bill, and I’m gonna keep hounding the administration for those RVO targets.”
