WASHINGTON - Following President Biden's executive action to begin transitioning federal government vehicles to electric vehicles, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) issued the following statement:
'The Biden Administration's new action to move toward all-electric vehicles raises concerns for states like Iowa that grow and produce clean ethanol and biodiesel. It's critical we continue to invest in our biofuel industry, not move away from it. I urge President Biden not to give into the misguided political demands of the Left and to change course by instead promoting the adoption of higher biofuel blends and investing in expanding biofuel infrastructure that will provide consumers with better access to cleaner, cheaper choices at the pump,' said Senator Joni Ernst.
