To the Editor:

Iowa agriculture received some of the brightest news we’ve had all year recently when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its decision to reject 54 of the 68 so-called “gap-year” exemptions from our nation’s biofuel laws. The special waivers are filed by oil companies seeking to push ethanol and biodiesel out of the fuel mix. This announcement offered a significant morale boost to America’s biofuels producers and farmers, who have faced major hardships over the past year.
