The Senate-passed infrastructure bill includes money for roads and bridges. There’s also money for rail and ports. National Corn Growers Association President Linder is pleased with this vote. “It is so wonderful to have the investment in infrastructure that will help move our grain and value-added products out of the country,” said LInder. “We have a lot of folks that really don’t have good access to internet yet in Rural America and that includes farmers; it is great to have the broadband piece.” Linder said he is somewhat disappointed in the lack of dollars for ethanol-related infrastructure.
