The Minnesota Corn Growers Association held their delegate and annual meeting on Thursday at MN Ag Expo. Delegates set policy priorities for 2020. Past President Brian Thalmann says the Better Fuels Initiative is a big push. “Minnesota has been a leader in so many ways. We were the first state that went to an E10 policy and we want Minnesota to be the first state to go to E15,” explains Thalmann. “We’ve been having discussions with the governor in the last year. I finally asked Governor Walz in the fall if we can do this. He said let’s do it. We’re looking forward to working with the governor and state lawmakers to make it happen.” Renewable Fuels Association President Geoff Cooper attended the meeting and praised Minnesota’s leadership in renewable fuels. “They’ve been at the forefront of developing the ethanol marketplace.”
