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