Farmer, ethanol producers rally during Pruitt visit

16 June, 2018, 17:29
Farmers and ethanol producers in South Dakota held a good old fashioned tractor rally in Sioux Falls as Administrator Pruitt met with farmers in Reliance about 200 miles west. "Corn prices right now are at breakeven or below and we've lost 1.5 billion gallons of ethanol to exemptions that EPA has granted to refiners", said South Dakota Corn Growers president Troy Knecht. He said the EPA has the authority and will seek a waiver to allow year-round E15 sales. "From the Renewable Fuel Standard to the so-called 'Clean Power Plan, ' we are working hard to fulfill the agency's true mission while providing certainty to stakeholders in South Dakota and across the country". "I mean, we're setting records", said Trump last week. "An easy fix to uncertainty with trade would be to grant us the E15 waiver that we're looking for". But the president also said Pruitt isn't "blameless" for his many ethics controversies.
"Scott Pruitt is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA". The Mitchell resident running for Congress cited his time as a former South Dakota Public Utilities Commissioner as his basis for understanding that American producers and consumers appreciate freedom. "I don't know what kind of hardship that is, but it's not like the hardship that I'm used to on the farm". Pruitt has been the EPA Administrator since February 2017.
At the East Kansas Agri-Energy ethanol plant in Garnett, Kansas, Pruitt sat down with a roomful of farmers and ethanol supporters who told him they were "mad as hell" about EPA efforts they believe undermine the RFS law.
The National Review, a conservative outlet broadly in support of Pruitt's policies, echoed some of that sentiment in a piece published Wednesday calling for his exit. But Inhofe said he would like to talk to Pruitt about the "piling on" of ethics allegations so he can assess what is true and what is not.

"I think something needs to happen to change that", he told Ingraham.
So far, Pruitt's ethical lapses have not crimped President Trump's support for his top environmental regulator. But is it enough to result in yet another investigation of Pruitt, who's already the subject of 12 probes? His comments add to growing complaints about Pruitt from some conservatives as well as Democrats.
When Fargo, N.D. -based radio host Scott Hennen asked Pruitt about being in the "eye of the storm" yesterday during an interview, the EPA boss immediately pivoted to his success transforming EPA as Trump sees fit, which he said has angered the "left".
