FARM BUREAU BOARD ENCOURAGES ETHANOL'S INCLUSION IN CLEAN AIR ACT

 FARM BUREAU BOARD ENCOURAGES ETHANOL'S INCLUSION
 IN CLEAN AIR ACT
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ohio Farm Bureau has joined the effort urging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to "get off the dime" and make a clear decision on ethanol and its role in reformulated gasolines as associated with proposed Clean Air Act guidelines.
 Members of Ohio Farm Bureau's board of trustees signed a petition during their regular monthly meeting requesting action by President Bush and U.S. EPA "to prevent ethanol discrimination in reformulated gasoline for non-attainment cities affected by the Clean Air Act."
 The petition has been forwarded to corn growers in Missouri and Illinois who will be presenting similar petitions to federal officials in early July.
 Farm Bureau board members, who met recently at the South Point Ethanol facility in southern Ohio, also supported a rally sponsored by the Ohio Corn Growers scheduled for 11 a.m. July 9 at the Ohio Statehouse. Ohio farmers will


gather to hear presentations and to demonstrate their support for the renewable fuel resource.
 "Congress and President Bush fully intended for ethanol to be a part of the Clean Air Act," said C. Ray Noecker, a Pickaway County farmer who is president of the Ohio Farm Bureau. "EPA needs to get off the dime and listen to what Congress said with its recommendations -- include ethanol in the regulations."
