POET PAC: Securing Tomorrow

How POET PAC Dollars Work

POET PAC is the largest and most effective political action committee (PAC) in the biofuels industry. Every day in Washington, D.C., decisions are being made on policies that will impact bioethanol, energy security, the environment, and agriculture. It’s an ongoing conversation, and POET PAC is committed to consistently engaging with legislators to educate them on the impact of bioethanol.

POET PAC works only because of your support. The PAC collects voluntary contributions from individuals who are committed to supporting pro-biofuels candidates and advocating for pro-biofuels policy at the Federal level.

The resources POET PAC members provide are critical. Policy impacts us all, regardless of industry. As we fight to increase biofuel blends and expand markets, it is vital that we support champions who will fight to support the issues that are most important to bioethanol producers, farmers, and the communities that we love and call home.

POET PAC dollars are strategically used to:

• Support the campaigns of existing biofuel champions in the House and Senate

• Counter the influence of anti-biofuel candidates and special interest groups

• Support and educate candidates who will become the biofuel champions of the future

• Support trusted voices, providing focused advocacy that impacts the future of biofuels and rural communities

Bioprocessing has transformed economies in rural America, and we’ve only just begun. The potential to create new value through agriculture is tremendous. Gaining access to higher blends and expanding markets for low-carbon bioethanol and innovative co-products made in the Midwest are on the horizon. POET PAC is a critical tool in bringing that promise to reality.

The generosity of POET PAC contributions has enabled the PAC to punch above its weight class over the years. We’ve seen great success in Washington, D.C. that has enabled bioethanol producers and farmers to step up, innovate, and create tremendous value for rural economies. But there is a lot of work to be done. The policy decisions being debated and implemented today will have generational impacts on the future.
