The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) wrapped up its annual DC Fly-in last week, with dozens of members bringing their message to Capitol Hill when it comes to important topics for the industry.

CEO Brian Jennings was especially pleased members were able to hear from Sen. Deb Fischer (R-NE), sponsor of the Nationwide Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act of 2023. “Probably the most important piece of legislation for our industry pending in Congress right now,” said Jennings. “The fact that we could meet with the primary author of the bill, she could help explain to us the roadblocks she sees in the path of her legislation, and then we could have our members go to Capitol Hill…that’s what this event is all about.”

Even though it is a presidential election year and nothing much may even get done, Jennings says it’s still important to show up. “There was also some feedback that maybe in the lame duck we could move something like an E15 bill,” he said. “If we fail to do the work between now and November we won’t have an opportunity to move anything in the lame duck.”
