South Dakota Corn Growers Association Executive Director DaNita Murray is pleased with Friday’s EPA announcement, approving an emergency waiver for E15 summer driving. “This is the right decision for American pocketbooks and it is the right decision for a lot of reasons for the industry as a whole.” Murray says the EPA waiver underscores the ethanol industry’s environmental story. “With this waiver, EPA had to again make the determination that emisisons weren’t going to be affected this summer by E15 and air quality would be the same,” said Murray. “We’re always glad to see these environmental truths highlighted.” North Dakota Corn Growers Association Executive Director Brenda Elmer said this decision will save consumers money and reduce supply constraints. “To say we are delighted would be a tremendous understatement.”
