It is such bad policy to have a single politician arbitrarily handing out millions and millions of dollars at his sole discretion. It’s a recipe for corruption. It’s not Evers’ fault. It’s how the CARES Act was idiotically structured, but I sure home someone is combing through the campaign and private finances for governors all over the country.
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today announced that Wisconsin will be making up to $3.25 million of federal Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding available to Wisconsin’s nine ethanol producers. The support aims to help offset some of the significant losses experienced by the industry earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I appreciate the efforts of Wisconsin’s ethanol industry to pivot and respond to the challenges presented by COVID-19,” said Gov. Evers. “Ethanol production is extremely important to a number of supply chains in our state and will be especially critical as we finalize and implement our vaccine distribution plans. I’m proud to support our state’s ethanol producers and continue our commitment to innovation in biofuels.”
