IOWA CORN GROWERS ASSN WILL FIGHT D.C. CIRCUIT COURT DECISION ON E15
Source: Iowa Corn Growers Assn news release

Johnston, IA - Today, the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) is disappointed by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal's decision, which reversed the EPA's 2019 rule allowing for year-round sales of E15, a widely available, clean-burning, and more affordable fuel that is suitable for 95% of vehicles on the road in the U.S.

In response, ICGA President Carl Jardon made the following statement:

"The Iowa Corn Growers Association strongly disagrees with the D.C. Circuit's decision. E15 is the most immediate, readily available, and environmentally friendly solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions today. It does not make sense to reinstate barriers that could inhibit market access to a cleaner-burning fuel choice that combats climate change," said Carl Jardon, a farmer from Randolph, Iowa.

"Iowa is the nation's leader in corn and ethanol production, and ICGA will continue to work with the Biden Administration and our biofuels champions in Congress and the State of Iowa to challenge this decision and maintain consumer access to E15 year-round in 2022 and beyond."
