Poll Question: Taxes Subsidizing Ethanol

Wyoming has a 40-cents-per gallon tax subsidy on ethanol produced, with little benefit to the state.
Wyoming has a 40-cents-per gallon tax subsidy on ethanol produced, with little benefit to the state.

Representative Mike Madden, along with Representative John Botten, were guests last week on Public Pulse. Among the topics discussed was the issue of taxes in Wyoming being used to subsidize Ethanol development.

Here is a portion of that discussion.

Madden went on to say that there wasn't any money in the General Fund at the time the tax subsidy was established in the late 90's, and now it's been a challenge to change the law, even though most legislators want to do away with it.

The conversation with Representative Madden prompted this week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question: Should Wyoming taxes on gasoline be used to subsidize ethanol?
