Ricketts Comments on Reports White House is “Stalling” Ethanol Expansion

November 24, 2023

OMAHA, NE – Today, U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts (R-NE), released the following statement in response to reports the Biden administration is “stalling” ethanol expansion this summer in Midwestern states:

“The Biden administration needs to follow the law and keep their commitments for this summer. President Biden has overlooked and underestimated the economic and environmental benefits of biofuels like ethanol as part of our energy portfolio. Ethanol saves consumers money at the pump, it is made in the USA and a boom to Midwest state economies, and it’s good for the environment.”
