Washington, DC —  “With Americans paying more and more at the pump, today’s Presidential action lays the groundwork for greater energy security. Now for the first time in decades, America has a comprehensive energy policy.

South Dakota farmers will play an important role in producing the ethanol that will fuel America’s economy. I applaud the new Congress for acting and thank President Bush for his leadership.” – Senator John Thune
