AMI joined a diverse group of organizations in urging House and Senate leaders to reject efforts to continue or expand federal support for corn ethanol in any appropriations, super committee proposal, or debt reduction package.

In particular, the organizations oppose:

“Any combination of these policies would only serve to expand the market for fuels derived from corn, especially corn ethanol, and exacerbate the many challenges associated with those fuels. Again, we urge you to reject efforts to expand federal support for corn ethanol in any appropriations, tax, or debt reduction package,” the letter concluded.
