The State of South Dakota will transition its fleet vehicles to run on E-30, Governor Kristi Noem announced in her State of the State Address on Jan. 8. This will further maximize the use of homegrown fuels and revolutionize the way people fuel their vehicles, she explained.
Noem said she has already met with state government leaders on this initiative, and they’re working on a plan to make it happen.
Noem spoke about advancing agriculture in the state and pushing for a "level playing field" for farmers when it comes to trade.
“Late last year, I was glad to see the president’s support of farm country when he lifted restrictions on year-round E-15, a move that will help consume another 2 billion bushels of corn, while potentially saving consumers up to 10 cents per gallon at the pump,” she declared in the address.
