Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Corn lobby cashes in on tax compromise
Grist - 12/13/2010.
By Tom Philpott – The latest version of the compromise, which is expected to, pass this week, would deliver a one-year extension of a tax break for ethanol use that costs the public about $5 billion per year.
