Gov. Daugaard’s Statement On E15

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard today issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement on year-round E15:

“I commend President Trump for directing the EPA to cut through the red tape and make E15 available year around.  South Dakota produces more than a billion gallons of ethanol per year. Year-round E15 will mean 2 billion more bushels of corn will be used right here in America, making South Dakota farmers less dependent on foreign corn buyers. This is great news for the South Dakota farmer. E15 is also less expensive to the consumer, reduces our reliance on middle-east oil and burns cleaner than gas without ethanol. Expanding E15 availability to 12 months a year is a win for America.”
