LB507 - Prohibit the use of treated seed corn in the production of agricultural ethyl alcohol in certain circumstances

This bill passed!

The National Audubon Society considers climate change to be a significant threat to birds and therefore supports ethanol production as one of many types of renewable energy. As with all energy production, generation facilities must be able to properly dispose of waste products and do so in a manner that prevents environmental contamination. Very few facilities in the nation use treated corn or corn treated with insecticides, and doing so presents a significant and unnecessary disposal challenge that threatens wildlife.
