An amendment by Sen. Tom Coburn to repeal the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit has failed. Senators Michael Bennet and Mark Udall took a stand against the amendment. If passed, the result could have been a 38 percent reduction in production in the ethanol industry. It also would have resulted in job loss because the industry supports more than 400,000 jobs in the U.S.
