IDFA Commends Senators for Bill to End Ethanol Subsidies

Mar 16, 2011

IDFA continues to call for an end to subsidies for blending corn-based ethanol into gasoline. Last week IDFA joined a diverse coalition of organizations that commended Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) for introducing bi-partisan legislation to end the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit.

The legislation, if enacted immediately, would save taxpayers nearly $4 billion during the remainder of 2011. Read the letter to the senators here.
