Costello Receives 2012 Fueling Growth Award

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL) recently received the 2012 Fueling Growth Award from Growth Energy for his support of ethanol. The award is the highest given to members of Congress. Costello has consistently supported a strong renewable fuel standard to promote ethanol production as well as the use of E15, a 15% ethanol blend.

"Illinois produces 1.6 billion gallons of ethanol annually, bolstering our economy and family farmers," said Costello. "Ethanol also reduces tailpipe emissions, which is good for the environment while reducing our dependence on foreign sources of oil."
