ALG urges no corn cave

Sept. 19, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging President Donald Trump to extend exemptions to oil refineries that are financially harmed by the requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard:

“President Trump has wisely provided exemptions for 33 oil refineries that were in danger of financial ruin based upon the out of control ethanol requirements within the Renewable Fuel Standard. Given the recent attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil processing facilities, it is more important than ever to not only retain but increase our own fuel refining capacity. While corn state politicians are demanding more federally mandated corn purchases to turn food into fuel, President Trump should just say no. If it is decided to accommodate these political demands, the administration should at the very least create RINS caps to prevent arbitrary federal mandates from harming our domestic oil refining capacity.”
