In conjunction with Congresswoman Cheri Bustos’ visit to the plant, Patriot created a White House petition to reinstate higher Renewable Fuels Volumes. We who know the value the ethanol industry has provided to America must step forward. Support America, Support the biofuel industry, Support Patriot and our community. Sign this petition now. 100,000 signatures are needed by December 26 to compel President Obama to respond. Please take the time right now to help us out.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued a proposal to roll back the amount of renewable fuels that must be blended in the nation’s fuel supply. Iowa’s Governor Terry Branstad has launched a website to oppose this ruling.
“The EPA’s ruling to slash the RFS will have a negative ripple effect through the American economy,” Branstad said. “The result of this proposed rule change would mean corn prices would plummet below the cost of production, loss of jobs and increased dependence on foreign oil. Concerned citizens cannot sit on the sidelines and wait for the comment period to open. Now is the time to defend and protect the RFS.”

Listen to Tom Vilsack as he disputes the AP ethanol report. ”There are a number of errors and inaccuracies in that article,” Vilsack said. “It’s inaccurate to suggest that because one program has declined, all of conservation has declined. It has not.” Follow this link:
