Dear Iowa Utilities Board, 

My name is Tim Burrack, and I am a farmer, business owner, and former president of the Iowa Corn Growers. I am writing to stress the importance of rescheduling Summit Carbon Solutions’ IUB hearing to a date earlier in the year such as August or September. 

Scheduling a date during harvest season makes it difficult for farmers to participate. An earlier summer date would allow construction to proceed through the 2024 growing season and not reach into the 2025 planting season. This way, Summit can complete all land restoration the same year they construct the pipeline. Summit’s CO2 sequestration project is as transformational to the ethanol industry and Iowa economy as the original ethanol economy. I was there when it began. 

Thank you for considering my request. 

Tim Burrack
