Sens. Grassley and Ernst wrong to hold up Trump EPA nominees over ethanol

Oct. 26, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement to lift their holds on Trump EPA nominees over potential changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard:

“Iowa Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst are wrong to hold up due to corn ethanol concerns critically important Environmental Protection Agency nominees who will help accomplish President Trump’s agenda of rolling back Obama era regulations that are crushing the economy. The fact is, like it or not, the Renewable Fuel Standard requiring use of ethanol will remain in place, contrary to claims otherwise. President Trump needs his team in place in order to get the economy moving, and while we have the utmost respect for Chairman Grassley and Senator Ernst, their blocking of Trump’s nominees hardly seems to mesh with political ads featuring castrating of hogs in Washington, D.C.
