Newly introduced legislation could open up new markets

Date

Newly introduced legislation could open up new markets for Ohio farmers. U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) along with Pete Ricketts (R-NE) introduced the bipartisan Renewable Fuel for Ocean-Going Vessels Act which encourages the use of biofuels utilizing homegrown farm products for ships and oceangoing vessels. According to Brown,  “Ohio can be a leader in producing more sustainable marine fuels – creating new markets for Ohio farmers. From ships crossing the Atlantic to vessels delivering goods to ports along Lake Erie, Ohio soybean farmers can produce the renewable fuel of the future that drives this industry. This bill is a win for Ohio farmers and producers.” To find out more click here https://www.brown.senate.gov/download/renewable-fuels-for-ocean-going-vessels
