Reedy, Nesselhuf receive Friend of Ethanol award Sen. Joe Reedy and Rep. B.J. Nesselhuf both received the Friend of Ethanol award. The South Dakota Corn Growers Association and the American Coalition have presented the award the last two years for ethanol. Both Reedy and Nesselhuf received the award both years for significant efforts to promote the benefits of the ethanol industry in the South Dakota Legislature.
"I'm proud to have been a supporter of ethanol for the past several years. It is one of the best things to happen to South Dakota in the last century," said Reedy. The senator has been a strong advocate of the ethanol industry for years. Nesselhuf added, "Ethanol has the potential to revitalize our rural economy. I'm proud to say that I'm a strong supporter of ethanol every year, not just in election years."
