Gov. Pete Ricketts Monday lambasted the Environmental Protection Agency for delaying regulations that would benefit Nebraska’s ethanol industry, which he called a key to the state’s agribusiness economy.
“It is a typical example of big government that doesn’t get it,” Ricketts said during a meeting at Omaha’s Green Plains Inc., the nation’s fourth-largest ethanol producer and one of the first stops as he toured the state to kick off National Ag Week.
