Dear Iowa Utilities Board members Huser, Loizer, and Byrnes, 

My name is Austin Miller, and I am studying Agricultural Systems Technology at Iowa State University. I am a member of Iowa Corn and serve as a member of the Iowa Corn Collegiate Advisory Team. I also farm alongside my father and grandfather in Buchanan County. 

I request that the Summit Carbon Solutions hearing be rescheduled to the summer months. Avoiding a burden on farmers, like myself, during the busiest time of the year, harvest, should be the number one priority. Instead of putting farmers in a position where we must choose between operating our business during harvest and attending a hearing about a project that impacts us, the board can move the hearing to July or August and avoid the issue. Moving the meeting will be essential to making this process fair and open to all parties involved. I hope you deeply consider moving the hearing dates to benefit all parties. 

I appreciate your consideration, 

Austin Miller
