The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is urging farmers to submit comments to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding a new proposal on multi-pollutant emissions standards.
The call-to-action was launched after EPA first announced the proposal in April. The comment period deadline closes on July 5.The new standards would effectively force automakers to produce electric vehicles at an increasingly rapid rate to comply with the stringent proposed rule.
NCGA leaders believe with this one-size-fits-all approach, EPA ignores other low-carbon solutions, like ethanol. If left unchanged, this rulemaking has the potential to remove hundreds of millions of bushels of domestic corn demand from the market each year.
NCGA encourages all members and advocates to let EPA know that ethanol is a low-carbon solution to emissions reduction that is readily available.
