To the editor:
Governor, please immediately unallot my tax dollars for ethanol subsidies! By simply removing the remaining “ethanol subsidies” under the fiscal 2009 budget of $8,363,000 and the $12,168,000 scheduled for 2010 and the additional $12,168,000 for 2011, for a total savings of $32,699,000 kept in the 2009-2011 budgets to date!
Then, also end the $19,790,000 still scheduled for fiscal year 2012-2013. For all this money only goes to the ethanol plants that enjoyed the best of times and for the last five years have sent out more than $100 million annually to their investors in the form of dividends.
This will make a total savings of $53 million, available for government agencies and people who really need help!
Thank you for your leadership.
