CORN GROWERS RESPOND TO STATE OF UNION ADDRESS, CALL FOR ACTION
National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) reports:

The following is a statement from National Corn Growers President Martin Barbre on President Barack Obama's 2014 State of the Union Address:

"It was great to hear President Obama talk about the importance of an 'all-of-the-above' energy policy. And you can't have such a policy without biofuels.

"So, we call on his Administration to back away from its irresponsible proposal to reduce the Renewable Fuel Standard, a program that has done much to promote energy independence, restore jobs in rural America, and clear the air.

"Likewise, we join the President in calling for a 'year of action' - starting with the immediate passage and signing of the 2014 farm bill that just came out of conference committee this week. It will help feed hungry Americans and provide needed stability to American agriculture.

"And then, Congress can rebuild our sorely outdated waterway infrastructure and move Trade Promotion Authority forward, as the President requested. There's plenty to do in a 'year of action' that will help our economy recover."
