Clinton Has Flip-Flopped On Support For Ethanol

- October 11, 2015

As A Presidential Candidate In 2007, Clinton Hailed Ethanol Production As Iowa’s Chief Contribution To The Renewable Fuel Movement. “Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is scheduled to return to Iowa today, in part to promote a campaign proposal encouraging ethanol production - a concept she once vigorously opposed in the U.S. Senate. After voting to block incentives for the corn-based fuel additive, the New York senator now hails Iowa's chief contribution to the renewable fuel movement, and she suggested last week that an ethanol tax credit be extended.” (Beaumont Thomas, “Clinton To Back Ethanol In Iowa,” Des Moines Register, 3/4/07)

  • Clinton’s Energy Plan Included Tax Credits, Research And Loan Guarantees For Ethanol. CLINTON’S ENERGY PLAN: “As part of her energy plan, Senator Clinton has proposed an additional increase in this biofuels production target to 60 billion gallons by 2030. In addition, Senator Clinton's energy plan extends tax credits for ethanol and biodiesel. Her plan also accelerates the development of cellulosic ethanol by investing $2 billion in cellulosic ethanol research, and providing loan guarantees for the two billion gallons of cellulosic ethanol capacity.” (Hillary Clinton For President, “Hillary Clinton Outlines Vision for America's Farmers & Rural Communities,” Press Release, 12/13/07)

As A Senator, Clinton “Vigorously Opposed” Ethanol Production. “Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is scheduled to return to Iowa today, in part to promote a campaign proposal encouraging ethanol production - a concept she once vigorously opposed in the U.S. Senate.” (Thomas Beaumont, “Clinton To Back Ethanol In Iowa,” The Des Moines Register, 3/4/07)

Clinton Experienced The “Closest Thing In Politics To A Religious Experience?” The “Ethanol Conversion.” “What's the closest thing in politics to a religious experience? The ethanol conversion. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) experienced one in May of last year. Long opposed to federal support for the corn-based biofuel, she reversed herself and endorsed even bigger ethanol incentives than she previously voted against.” (Shailagh Murray, “Ethanol Undergoes Evolution As Political Issue,” The Washington Post, 3/13/07)
