Farmers are no strangers in working through ups and downs in the markets and cycles of high financial stress. Unfortunately, when we have a bureaucratic agency actively undermining our domestic biofuels industry and an administration’s promises to farmers, it seems as if we are approaching unchartered territory.
The president offered a strong, public commitment to our farmers, those who make a living in the biofuels industry, and the state of Iowa. But the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is effectively throwing those promises out the window. The EPA can no longer continue to undermine an industry this critical to the health of rural America.
