The White House is STILL considering a deal, presented by EPA Administrator Pruitt and oil refiners, that undermines the RFS. We need the President to continue to stand up for farmers and stop the Environmental Protection Agency from taking actions behind closed doors that benefit refiners at the expense of farmers.
Members of the Illinois Corn Growers Association (ICGA) list "representation in Springfield, IL and Washington, DC" among the top three reasons they remain one of our over 4,000 members. And they are right! ICGA does a great job representing Illinois corn farmers on a state and a national level.
Illinois farmers have enjoyed the Yield Trend Endorsement, saving them money on their crop insurance, because of the work of ICGA. In fact, the work of ICGA contributed to the availability of crop insurance at all, as well as access to other farm programs, voluntary water quality standards, trade with other countries, and ethanol marketing opportunities.
Take a peek for yourself! We are doing great things for farmers ... and we'd love to do great things for you.
