Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told President Trump farmers will come to like the EPA’s plan to offset past biofuel usage exemptions. In response, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley said he trusts President Trump and Secretary Perdue, but not the EPA. “Before they put out the final rule next month, I want them to show us without a doubt there’s going to be 15 billion gallons,” said Grassley. “There’s a big public relations problem with people in the ethanol industry, corn farmers and this senator about the EPA keeping it’s word and playing footsies with the big oil companies. Only time will tell.”
