Update and the comment that I got back from Clay Ingram.


Quote:
Thank you for taking the time to contact the legislative office of State
Representative Clay Ingram with your support for Representative Gaetz's
legislative proposal to repeal fuel standards mandating specified
amounts of ethanol in gasoline in Florida.

Representative Ingram is very supportive of this legislation and is in
favor all legislation that is designed to provide greater flexibility to
Florida's businesses and consumers. Regulations like this one cost
Florida's job creators money, and harm consumers.

Representative Ingram appreciates your input, should you have any
additional questions or concerns regarding this or any other legislative
matter please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Sincerely,


Chris Spencer
Legislative Aide to
Clay Ingram
State Representative, District 2

9999 University Parkway
Pensacola, FL 32514
Phone: (850) 494-7330
Fax: (850) 284-8390
Mobile: (850) 597-1111
chris.spencer@myfloridahouse.gov
Please note:
Florida has a very broad public records law. Most written communications
to or from state officials or staff regarding state business are
considered to be public records and will be made available to the public
and the media upon request
OK....So lets go people. Contact you representative and bust that crap up.

Default Ethanol

This was the response to a letter to Greg Evers, sounds good now, just gotta get everyone else onboard.



Chad,

Thanks for your support. I filed this bill along with the House sponsor,
Representative Matt Gaetz, for reasons exactly like those you mention below. Too many of my constituents have brought me issues of small engine damage from the ethanol in fuels. It is my hope, it will continue to garner support across the state and with enough elected officials to pass and repeal the mandate.
Thanks again for your support!

Greg

After reading the link above it moved me to write a strong letter to the one Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, voted against the repeal.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"Why? Why would you vote aginst the repeal of the Non Ethonal gas? [SB 238]

Do you know anything about internal combustion engines? Do you know that the Government is subsiding the farmers for this crap fuel?

"Ethanol production is subsidized by the government and cost more than gas.

Ethanol has far less BTUs per volume than gas. This gives less mileage per gallon.

Ethanol is very corrosive to systems not specifically designed to handle it. It corrodes aluminum carburetors in small engines and the rubber hoses.

Disband the Department of Energy and the EPA, let market forces decide what energy sources we use."

The only reason I can think of that you would vote the way you did is you have your hand in the cookie jar. Do you have your hand in the cookie jar or are you just ingerant about this subject?"
