Thirty members of the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) have spent the last two days on Capitol Hill for the second annual ACE "Biofuels Beltway March," a DC fly-in that puts grassroots ethanol advocates in touch with Members of Congress. We'll provide a full report as the staff members return to the office tomorrow, but initial reports are that the event was a great success!
What a critically important time to visit face-to-face with Congress. So many important issues are at hand, including the extension of the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit, the need to approve E15 for all vehicles, and legislation to promote more flex-fuel vehicles and ethanol blender pumps.
To see brief reports from some of the fly-in participants, go to www.twitter.com and search for #ACEflyin to see all 'tweets' marked with the official event hash tag.
