Dear Iowa Utilities Board, 

As a supporter of Summit Carbon Solutions and the former supervisor of O’Brien County, I would like to thank the IUB for its time spent on the hearings for the project. Summit’s carbon capture and sequestration pipeline has the potential to redefine the ethanol industry in Iowa and boost our economy for years to come. 

Summit’s project will create local jobs and secure the competitive position of Iowa’s ethanol in low-carbon fuel markets. In addition, O’Brien County will see an increase in tax revenue for the community that will benefit schools, construction, and other important projects. Rural Iowa will see many benefits from this CO2 pipeline. 

Thank you again for your time and consideration, and I hope that you join me in supporting Summit Carbon Solutions.
