President Donald Trump will come to Council Bluffs next week to take a tour and deliver remarks at Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy LLC.

In his remarks June 11, Trump is expected to focus on the finalization and implementation of the year-round E15 rule.

It wasn’t clear whether the event will be open to the public.

Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy has more than 800 members, many of whom represent area farmers, local banks and other Midwest agriculture business owners.

The final E15 rule announced last week follows Trump’s 2018 directive to the Environmental Protection Agency to remove barriers on the use of gasoline blended with up to 15 percent ethanol during the summer driving season and to reform the compliance system to increase transparency and deter price manipulation.

Trump last visited the Bluffs in October for a rally at the Mid-America Center
