Main Milbank, SD 605-432-1222 Farm groups urge Cong refocus on renewable fuels On Wednesday, March 19, the U.S. Senate narrowly voted down an amendment that would have opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil exploration. In the wake of that vote, the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation, Minnesota Soybean Growers Association, Minnesota Corn Growers Association and the Minnesota Coalition for Ethanol joined together to urge Congress to refocus its energies on developing domestic renewable fuels. "Opinions on drilling for oil in Alaska are across the board," said AI Christopherson, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation President. "But we all agree this issue should not distract us from the bigger benefits that biodiesel and ethanol promise." The United States consumes approximately 20 million barrels of oil a day, more than half of which is imported. The U.S. Department of Energy predicts that by 2005, the U.S. will import close to 68 percent of all petroleum consumed. "If we are really serious about clean water, energy independence and jobs, our focus should be on how we can significantly reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil," said Minnesota Corn Growers Association President Bryant Hokeness. "Renewable fuels provide the greatest opportunity to do this." Renewable fuels legislation has been introduced in both the Senate and House, calling for a ramp-up in production and consumption of renewable fuels. "Minnesota has led the nation in the promotion and development of ethanol," Minnesota Coalition for Ethanol President stated.
