Washington, D.C. —  “Today’s vote is a major step towards a national energy policy that promotes ethanol and creates jobs. The Senate bill makes ethanol a cornerstone of our energy policy and creates jobs in America’s heartland. Since the Senate version includes the Domenici-Thune ethanol amendment for an 8 billion gallon Renewable Fuels Standard, we are in a strong position to dramatically increase ethanol use. Today’s high gas prices reflect Congress’s failure to pass an energy bill in recent years. Passing a national energy plan is long overdue. I hope Congress moves quickly to send a final energy bill to the President.” – Senator John Thune
