Dubuque Telegraph Herald: Our opinion: Senators led Iowa charge on renewable fuels
Editorial Board
December 4, 2017
Although the Environmental Protection Agency’s ruling last week on Renewable Fuel Standard levels wasn’t a complete victory for corn farmers, it could have been much worse.
The fact that it wasn’t is owing in large part to Iowa’s voices in the Senate: Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst.
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt had threatened to severely decrease the fuel standard. That sent Grassley into hardball mode...enough to have Pruitt back off his plan to move the program backward.
Cheers to Grassley and Ernst for keeping up the pressure and fighting for Iowans.
