GOP rip Pelosi for ‘double standard’ on Maxine Waters’ comments
Michigan Farm News, – August 31, 2021
The Michigan Corn Growers Association (MCGA) is welcoming the reintroduction of The Next Generation Fuels Act, a House bill aiming to boost gas octane standards through high-octane ethanol blends.
The bill, supported by Michigan Farm Bureau and cosponsored by Rep. Lisa McLain (R-MI), calls for transitioning gasoline and vehicles to low-carbon, higher-octane fuel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet future needs of more advanced vehicles.
“Using higher blends of ethanol in our fuel supply will allow us to immediately and affordably decrease carbon emissions and build future vehicles with greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions,” said MCGA Chairman Matt Frostic.
“This legislation builds on the success of the Renewable Fuel Standard and makes it possible for corn farmers to continue our commitment to providing the cleanest, most efficient and lowest cost fuel on the market. We thank Congresswoman McLain for cosponsoring the bill and for her support of Michigan’s corn farmers.”
