Every Presidential Candidate’s Position on Ethanol

Submitted by on January 29, 2016 – 4:20 pmNo Comment

by Ben Potter  (Ag Web)  Agriculture has not provided many hot-button issues for the candidates of the 2016 presidential election to discuss – with one exception.

Because the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is oft-argued, and because the candidates are spending so much time in Iowa, where roughly 25% of the nation’s ethanol is produced, the question has come up here and there. Most notably, Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad recently took a jab at Ted Cruz for wanting to phase out the RFS.

What about the other candidates? The coalition America’s Renewable Future (ARF) has compiled a list of candidate stances before they declared their candidacy compared with their present opinions. (It should be noted that ARF is headed by Eric Brandstad, who is Gov. Brandstad’s son.)

“The fact is that every presidential candidate is either supportive of the RFS or has moved in that direction,” he notes.

Here are the candidate’s stances, listed alphabetically by name.  READ MORE and MORE (America’s Renewable Future/KTIC Radio) and MORE (Biofuels Digest) WATCH VIDEO (NBC Nightly News)
