State Representative Wendy McNamara (R-Mount Vernon) issued the following statement in response to Valero Energy announcing the purchase of the 110-million gallon ethanol plant at the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon.

"I am pleased that Valero Energy has chosen to make this purchase at Indiana’s largest public port and expand its business. The Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon is one of the closest major ports to the Mississippi River, and I am excited to see it resume operations. 

“The Mount Vernon ethanol plant has been idle since early 2012, and with this plant reopening comes more economic activity and job opportunities for our residents. Indiana has received national acclaim for its attractive business environment, and I will continue to work and support pro-business policies that bring more job opportunities to Southwest Indiana.”
