The Nebraska Corn Grower’s Association is backing the Next Generation Fuels Act legislation introduced by Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos. Corn Grower’s Executive Director Kelly Brunkhorst says the measure increases gasoline octane to a minimum standard through low carbon renewable fuels. He says that’ll lead to long term growth in the biofuels industry while building demand for corn.

He says the legislation should lead to higher blends of ethanol such as E-15 or E-30.

Brunkhorst says the Next Generation Fuels Act benefits not only producers but also consumers.

Besides Nebraska Corn Grower’s the National Farmers Union is also backing the measure.
