WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Corn Refiners Association (CRA) President and CEO John Bode issued the following statement regarding the introduction of the Biomanufacturing and Jobs Act:
“The corn refining industry applauds Representatives Alford and Craig for their leadership in introducing the Biomanufacturing and Jobs Act. Agriculture is foundational to the U.S. economy, with more than twice as many Americans manufacturing agricultural products as those manufacturing automobiles. The agriculture industry reaches far beyond the farm gate, supporting over 46 million jobs, supply chain resiliency, rural economies, and innovation. Representatives Alford and Craig’s commitment to investing in the American ag bioeconomy through the enhancement of USDA’s BioPreferred Program, and support for an increase in high-quality jobs in rural communities, is how we will expand on this growth and propel our nation to the forefront of biomanufacturing.”
