The United States Department of Agriculture recently announced over $100 million in grants towards renewable fuels.

Both Minnesota Senators, Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, said they helped to lead the bipartisan effort alongside Iowa Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst.

The money will go to help create higher blends of fuel- meaning better quality gas for drivers and less impact on the environment.

USDA’s Deputy Secretary Stephen Cepensky also provided a statement on the grants.

The KEYC News Now Washington Bureau talked to both Klobuchar and Smith about how the announcement will impact consumers, workers and the agriculture industry in their home state.
