Wisconsin passes ethanol bill

By | July 15, 2010
Senate Bill 279, coined the "ethanol bill," was signed by Gov. Jim Doyle of Wisconsin. State Rep. Scott Suder said the new law will focus the way research and development is managed by state run departments; expand state programs that support production, harvest, storage and transportation of all feedstocks, and also establish an advisory council. "This bill will expand the use of biofuels in the state of Wisconsin, preserve jobs, protect our environment and move the country toward energy independence," said Neal Kemmet, general manager of Ace Ethanol in Stanley, Wis.
