American Farm Bureau Supports Year-Round E15 proposal

Newsroom / October 10, 2018

The following statement regarding the proposal to allow expanded E15 sales can be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“Today’s announcement by President Trump in support of year-round E15 sales is a win for American farmers and consumers.  After years of declining farm income, opening up markets to additional fuel choices helps create new demand that farmers desperately need.  As our country has worked on breaking our dependency on foreign oil, our farmers have played a major role in helping us become more energy independent. AFBF applauds the president for his support of homegrown biofuels and upholding the campaign promises made to rural America.  We look forward to working with the Environmental Protection Agency to successfully implement year-round E15 sales.”
