Growth Energy Strongly Approves of USDA Undersecretary Nominees Censky and McKinney

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 15:07:03 CDT

Growth Energy Strongly Approves of USDA Undersecretary Nominees Censky and McKinney Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement today in support of the nominations of Stephen Censky to be Deputy Secretary of Agriculture and Ted McKinney to be Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Affairs at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

“Having strong leaders at the USDA who understand the role biofuels play in improving the U.S. farm economy and rural America is of the utmost importance to our industry. We have faith that both Mr. Censky and Mr. McKinney would bring this knowledge to these positions, and we fully support their nominations.

“Through his years at the helm of the American Soybean Association, Mr. Censky has seen biofuels transform the U.S. agricultural economy, which assures us he knows that biofuels can be an excellent tool as we seek innovative ways to strengthen the farm economy.

“Mr. McKinney has a keen understanding of what drives the growth of American ethanol in the international marketplace. Given trade challenges across the globe, including in Brazil, China, and the European Union, we need a strong agricultural voice at USDA who will make sure our trading partners understand that open markets mean more prosperity for all.”

The nomination hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. EST on September 19, 2017, in the Hart Senate Office Building.
