WASHINGTON – Today, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota reintroduced the Next Generation Fuels Act in the United States Senate, which increases gasoline octane to a minimum standard through low-carbon, renewable fuels, like ethanol. Farmers and consumers stand to gain from the economic and environmental benefits brought about by this legislation.
“We’re proud to continue to support common sense solutions like the Next Generation Fuels Act,” said NFU President Rob Larew. “With this bill, consumers would see more choice and lower costs and farmers would see greater opportunities for profitability and new markets, all while reducing emissions.”
NFU has been a strong supporter of higher-level blends of ethanol and welcomes the reintroduction. NFU supported this legislation in July 2022 when it was originally introduced in the Senate.
