Reuters - December 2, 2010

Ethanol trade groups Renew­able Fuels Asso­ci­a­tion and Growth Ener­gy are lob­by­ing the Sen­ate to extend a tax cred­it and revive a biodiesel tax cred­it that died a year ago. While ethanol sup­port­ers have been under fire in the past cou­ple of years from live­stock pro­duc­ers, food­mak­ers, and envi­ron­men­tal groups, they have been able to secure strong fed­er­al sup­port.
