The Michigan Corn Growers Association recently launched a new statewide radio ad today calling on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to stand up for Michigan businesses, farmers and consumers and protect the Renewable Fuel Standard.
“We have a clear choice between supporting clean-burning biofuels that we can produce right here in Michigan, or continuing to send our money overseas to pay for foreign oil,” says Jim Zook, executive director of MCGA. “The Renewable Fuel Standard supports millions of dollars in economic activity in Michigan, and creates jobs and new businesses. The EPA should stand up to Big Oil company attacks and do what’s right for Michigan consumers and businesses.”
The ad urges Michigan residents to submit their comments on the EPA’s proposal to decrease the amount of ethanol called for under the Renewable Fuel Standard. The EPA is accepting comments on the rule until Jan. 28. To find out more, or submit comments online, by visiting www.micorn.org.
