"I supported it the whole time I was in the Senate. I think it is important for us to innovate all the time to make sure our Renewable Fuel Standard is environmental sufficient rather than not, so that is something we can work on. I think it has worked well, and we would continue to pursue it."   - Cedar Rapids IA, 7-16-19

" He is adding insult to injury, insult to injury. This is just paying back campaign contributors. Thats what this was, and I hope that people will remember the cost to the American Farmer for what he is doing." - Cedar Rapids IA, 9-1-19


“What our farmers need is predictability and they need somebody who can help open up export markets for their products. Life is tough enough when you got the low commodity prices ... you got inputs going up through the roof."  - Boone IA, 12-22-19

"Absolutely. This is a problem with all these taxes -  so called extenders - and it makes it impossible for people to plan. Again this is one of those things - it’s perfectly - I have voted against this stuff sometimes when they have extended them after the fact, because the retroactivity makes no sense at all, it is ridiculous. The reason Mitch McConnell in the end he doesn’t care. If you actually care about the industry building the industry you can’t do it after the fact."
