Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said regarding the planned announcement that for farmers it “would be a big boost not only because of the anxiety of tariffs but because we’re having another record corn crop and that naturally drives down prices.”
Citing sources that spoke on the the condition of anonymity prior to the official announcement of plan The New York Times explains that the ban “traditionally run from June through September on selling gasoline that is blended with 15 percent ethanol,” as part of a 2011 anti-smog measure.
