Attention All Ears (of Corn): Ethanol Mandate Could Be Repealed*
Although a few free-market ideals have been coming from Jefferson City recently, one in particular caught my eye — a bill having to do with ethanol. The Richmond Daily News reports on a bill in the works that, if passed, would remove the ethanol mandate from Missouri law. The article makes many great points, the best of which is its citation of the Show-Me Institute’s ethanol study.
Ah, now there’s a thought — living in Missouri without a ethanol mandate. Already, Missourians are getting a glimpse of this eventuality every time the price of gasoline prices drop below the price of ethanol. Hopefully, we are on our way to having a choice of whether or not we want ethanol in our engines.
