Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement after the Senate voted to end support for the U.S. ethanol industry:

"I'm very disappointed that the Senate took this action today. Thousands of good-paying Iowa jobs depend on ethanol, and this industry is crucial to our state's economy. But ethanol is important to families across the country because it's a clean, domestically produced fuel source that lowers the price of gas. Today's vote is just another example of Washington politicians siding with big oil companies and foreign interests instead of standing up for a clean, domestic fuel source and the family farmers who produce it."
