Charlie Good wasn’t the only Nevadan to visit Washington, D.C., in late March as part of the Renewable Fuel Association’s American Coalition of Ethanol Fly-In. Local ethanol entrepreneur Bill Couser made the trip, too. Couser, traveling with 21 sets of visuals — which shows the process of corn to ethanol — made presentations to a number of key leaders and congressmen in Washington, D.C. He also attended meetings with the Environmental Protection Agency officials to discuss issues with regulations. While Couser was in Washington, his wife, Nancy, and son, Tim, hosted students attending the Nevada FFA’s Renewable Energy Summit at the Couser Cattle Company, north of Nevada. It was, what someone like Bill Couser would call, a “busy, but very worthwhile” week for his family.
