Obama Looking At US Ethanol Rules, Carney Says
From Gulf News
The Obama administration is reviewing the country’s ethanol policy as calls to suspend the program come from both political parties and the United Nations, citing the effects of the worst drought in 56 years on corn prices.
Twenty-five US senators, both Republican and Democrat, in an August 7 letter asked US Environmental Protection Agency Lisa Jackson to halt or lower the nation’s ethanol targets. That repeated an August 1 petition from a bipartisan coalition of 156 legislators in the House of Representatives.
