JOHNSTON, IOWA – From floods, a derecho storm, to COVID-19 response, Governor Kim Reynolds’ tenure in office has been marked by several challenges. But through it all, it has also been marked by a relentless support for Iowa biofuels. This month, she will join other biofuel supporters from around the country at the Virtual Iowa Renewable Fuel Summit to look back on past obstacles overcome and future growth opportunities within the state for biofuels.
Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director Monte Shaw said he is excited to have the Governor share her perspective at the beginning of a new year.
“Governor Kim Reynolds has been a true champion for biofuels and has taken every opportunity to seek growth opportunities for ethanol and biodiesel,” Shaw said. “The governor understands the direct lifeline biofuels provide for Iowa farmers and Iowa’s economy. We look forward to hearing her thoughts on a path forward for biofuels in 2021.”
