The Bryan Times,
Thank you to President Trump for attempting to stand up for Ohio’s farmers and the biofuel industry. Even though oil companies have been lobbying the EPA to secretly let them use less ethanol in their gas, President Trump proved he understands the importance and value of strong biofuel policies to Ohio farmers and rural communities when he announced his plan to uphold the Renewable Fuel Standard. Unfortunately the EPA is thwarting his agenda.
Farming is going through a rough patch across Ohio and the entire country, with bad growing conditions and other economic challenges. A proactive ethanol policy will create economic growth for farmers, communities, and increased access to less expensive fuel options for Ohio drivers, but only if President Trump can get the EPA under control.
