Tell President Trump that to uphold his commitment to biofuels and the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)!
The White House is attempting to force a deal between the biofuels industry and the refiners that would significantly harm the RFS by capping the price of Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs), the market mechanism that drives biofuels blending for ethanol and biodiesel. A cap on RIN values or RIN waiver credits would disrupt this market mechanism and take away the incentive to blend biofuels.
We are partnering with national organizations to make your voice heard. Remind President Trump that the RFS is working and that capping or waiving RIN prices will undercut the RFS and reduce demand for corn.
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.
