Grassley comment on Thune-Klobuchar-Feinstein ethanol agreement

Here is a comment from Sen. Grassley about the ethanol agreement announced today by Sens. Thune and Klobuchar:
 
“All things considered, it’s good news that an agreement was reached that salvages some of the effort to reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil.  I wish it would have included a more robust investment in alternative fuel infrastructure and cellulosic ethanol.  Overall, the fact that this happened in a vacuum, rather than in an even-handed debate over all energy tax incentives, will always be a raw deal, especially for taxpayers and renewable fuel producers.”
