Biden Delivers State of the Union Address

President Joe Biden’s State of the Union transcript included two mentions of the word farm. Biden said, “When corporations don’t have to compete, their profits go up, your prices go up, and small businesses and family farmers and ranchers go under,” announcing a crackdown on companies overcharging American businesses and consumers. The second, Biden stated a goal to “provide a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, those on temporary status, farm workers, and essential workers.” The speech included no mention of biofuel, ethanol or agriculture. Biofuel is a hot topic for agriculture as the price of gas and oil continue to increase and worries of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine are intensifying that. Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds delivered the Republican response to the speech. While Republicans are not in the White House, she said “We’re doing what we can,” including “fighting to restore America’s energy independence, including biofuels.”
