Hartzler Applauds President’s E15 Announcement

October 9, 2018
Press Release

HARRISONVILLE, MO – Today Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) made the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement that he will allow the year-round sale of 15% ethanol gasoline, or E15.

 

“This is great news for Missouri corn growers suffering from low commodity prices and the effects of a drought earlier this year,” said Hartzler, who is a member of the House Agriculture Committee. “Allowing E15 to be sold year-round will give consumers more choices at the pump and farmers will have a broader market to sell their corn, which will result in higher farm income. As recently as two weeks ago, I advocated with the White House for this change to help Missouri corn growers, so I was particularly glad to hear the President’s announcement today.”
