Biofuel Policies and Programs

April 17, 2009

Our evaluation found that traditional biofuels like corn-based ethanol serve a useful purpose, but are limited in their ability to replace petroleum-based fuels. We also found that the environmental impacts of corn-based ethanol are complicated and unclear. We make several recommendations for changes in the subsidy programs the state provides to biofuel producers.
