Senator Joni Ernst visited the Iowa Ag Radio tent at the Iowa State Fair to talk about issues facing agriculture. One of those topics was Ethanol.

Ernst says the Renewable Fuels Standard in general and Ethanol, in particular, has been filling a lot her time.

Ernst says she has continued to remind President Trump of his promises to farmers.

Ernst talks about the discussions she and Senator Grassley had with Acting Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Wheeler, who attended the Iowa State Fair on Monday.

Ernst says Wheeler wants concessions for small refiners if E15 becomes available year-round. Ernst says refiners have gotten enough concessions from the EPA already.
