Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued the following statement preceding President Biden’s visit to a POET ethanol plant in Menlo, Iowa.

“Tomorrow, President Biden will have the perfect opportunity to stand with Iowa farmers by allowing summer sales of E15.

“Decisions this year by the Biden administration have shown the president clearly favors Big Oil interests over the interest of Iowa farmers. It would be foolish for the president to continue down this path when he visits the number one biofuel producing state in the nation.

“As energy costs skyrocket, President Biden has relied on OPEC and dictators around the world to produce more oil to reduce the price at the pump at home.

“I’m hopeful tomorrow the President will finally embrace cleaner, cheaper home-grown biofuels that reduce dependence on foreign sources and empower American workers to solve the energy crisis. I know Iowa biofuel producers can ramp up production and provide affordable, low-carbon biofuels to the country if the president allows summer sales of E15.

“I, along with Senator Ernst, have continued to bring bipartisan solutions to the table that showcase Iowa’s clean and reliable energy.

“President Biden, don’t miss this chance to finally say yes to ethanol and Iowa’s farmers.”
