Podcast: Nebraska youth testifies in support of the RFS

In this podcast, Hannah Borg, a farmer's daughter from Allen, Nebraska testifies in support of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS)  on behalf of Nebraska's youth. Hannah is an eight-year 4-H member and second year FFA member.  She is the 6th generation on her family's farm raising corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and backgrounding cattle.

It's refreshing that someone so young understands what the RFS was put in place to do: create jobs, decrease greenhouse gas emissions and lessen our dependence on imported oil.

Listen to her podcast now. Then take two-minutes to comment to the EPA on why the RFS is important to Nebraska.

This isn't just for farmers to comment. It affects everyone in the state, so get others in your community to submit comments as well—bankers, school board members, county commissioners, economic development staff. Every sector of Nebraska's rural economy has benefitted from a robust ag economy in the state. We need all of them to send a comment to the EPA. We have just a few weeks left to tell the EPA how we feel. Don't delay. Please visit NebraskaCorn.org today to comment on EPA's proposal.
