ASA Director Chris Hill (MN) visits Congressman Tom Emmer to discuss the Biodiesel Tax Incentive this week.
ASA Directors serving on the Biodiesel & Infrastructure Advocacy Team participated in more than 30 meetings with targeted congressional offices this week to push for a multi-year extension of the biodiesel tax credit. Several of the directors also participated in meetings with key Administration officials on the importance of maintaining anti-dumping and counter-vailing duties on unfairly subsidized biodiesel imports. ASA grower-leaders participating in the fly-in included Rob Shaffer, Chair (IL); Chris Hill (MN); Gerry Hayden (KY); Dean Coleman (IA); Ken Boswell (NE); Morey Hill (IA); Matt Stutzman (MI) and Brad Kremer (WI).
