Foreign Produced Alcohol Fuel Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury.

October 30, 1980

To Secretary Bill Miller

Foreign produced alcohol should not benefit from the exemption granted to gasohol from the four cent a gallon gasoline tax. This exemption should be applied only to domestically produced alcohol fuel, to encourage the growth of our domestic industry.

I would like this corrected immediately by administrative means if possible, by legislation if necessary.

Sincerely,

JIMMY CARTER
