ILLINOIS SENATE APPROPRIATIONS AND REVENUE COMMITTEE HEARING
On April April 23, 2021, The Illinois Soybean Growers (ISG) testified in the joint Illinois Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee hearing on the Governor’s Proposed Fiscal Year 2022 Revenue Changes. They reasserted their opposition to the elimination of biodiesel policy that has resulted in cleaner air for Illinoisians, promoted energy independence, and strengthened the agricultural economy.

“As a farmer who understands that there are markets around the world for soybeans, I am always reminded of the value that biodiesel has right here at home. Biodiesel adds value to my farm, my community, and my state,” said ISG Chairman, Doug Schroeder, a soybean and corn farmer from Mahomet, Ill. “We understand Illinois’ dire budget situation and are willing to negotiate in good faith to bring revenue to the state, promote Illinois’ economy, and improve air quality by transitioning from a tax exemption based approach to a new biodiesel standard, like HB 229 and SB 2394.”
