Illinois state Rep. Tom Bennett (R-Gibson City) recently spent a day of learning at an ethanol plant in his 106th District.

“Last week, I joined with Senators Bill Cunningham and Scott Bennett to visit with One Earth Energy, [president and CEO] Steve Kelly and the Illinois Corn Growers Association as part of an opportunity to learn more about ethanol and visit the ethanol plant in Gibson City,” Bennett said in a press release. “It was a very well organized and educational event.”

Rep. Bennett expressed the importance of companies like One Earth Energy to his district, Illinois and the agriculture industry as a whole.

“As one of the leading corn-producing states in the nation, ethanol is an important part of the future of cleaner fuels and the Illinois agriculture industry,” Bennett said.

Now in his fourth year in Springfield, Bennett sits on the House Consumer Protection, State Government Administration, Renewable Energy & Sustainability, and Regulation committees.
