Energy Policy:

Corn Growers' Slater, Paperworkers' Squires explore ethanol industry growth

With a new push for alternative fuels from President Bush and the incentives contained in last year's energy bill, the ethanol industry is poised to see rapid expansion this year. Plus, growing interest in cellulosic ethanol derived from forest waste and other types of biomass could provide a new market for the forest products industry. During today's OnPoint, Samantha Slater, director of public policy for the National Corn Growers Association, and Owen Squires, director of the Rocky Mountain region of the Pulp and Paperworkers' Resource Council, talk about new demand for ethanol produced from corn and other sources.
