Sugar for Ethanol Proposal

Reuters, via CheckBiotech.org:

U.S. growers would be allowed to sell cane and beet sugar for use in making ethanol under a House Agriculture Committee proposal -- a signal change for a program that treats sugar solely as a food.

Sugar is part of a 111-page proposal for updating U.S. crop subsidies. The package was written at the direction of chairman Collin Peterson, Minnesota Democrat, and is scheduled for committee debate next week.
