IOWA OFFICIALS URGE EPA TO HOLD RFS HEARING IN THEIR STATE
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Iowa's elected officials have sent a letter to President Obama and other administration officials urging the federal government to hold a hearing in Iowa on the EPA proposal to cut the amount of ethanol required to be mixed in fuel.

Among those signing the letter was Iowa Ag Secretary Bill Northey, who says the ethanol industry impacts more than just the farmers who grow the corn used to produce it.

"Whether you are selling tires to folks or working at a grocery store, there is an impact-when the income from Iowans goes down from one place, it affects every other Iowan out there-and certainly agriculture has the power to do that," Northey says.

In addition to Northey, Governor Terry Branstad and all six members of Iowa's Congressional delegation signed onto the letter. It says Iowans and all Midwesterners deserve a fair hearing on the issue that is not "clouded by the politics of Washington, D.C.".
