The subsidy for ethanol is set to expire this month — both SD senators are arguing for it’s extension. The AL has a full story from it’s reporter with one of the coolest name ever – Cody Winchester.
The end of the subsidy would be pretty crushing to the ethanol industry. I think it’s even hard to imagine the full impact here in the middle of ethanol country…..but it wouldn’t be good.
Relying on the gov’t is tricky thing at best (as Lewis and Clark Regional Water System) If ethanol is to remain a viable renewable fuel, perhaps it’s new deal with NASCAR will be bigger boon to win further acceptance of the alternative than any gov’t subsidy….of course money in the pocket is better than a car in the pits.
