USDA Undersecretary Steve Censky gave one of his last addresses in his current role to the American Coalition for Ethanol virtual annual conference this week. It was announced this morning that Censky will be returning to his former job as CEO of the American Soybean Association in November as after serving with USDA since October 2017.
In his prerecorded remarks at the ACE conference this week, Censky accepted the organization’s Paul Dana Marketing Vision Award for his leadership on the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP).
“USDA received 121 applications from 27 different states for HBIIP,” said Censky. “We are reviewing those applications now and will be getting the money out the door starting (this month).”
