Agriculture companies believe that the lack of tax breaks will only be passed along to the consumer and help fuel rising food costs. One of the primary reasons behind this argument is the rising demand for corn based ethanol biofuels. Currently, corn used for biofuels accounts for about a third of total corn volume. With the supply/demand balance already teetering, ethanol makers argue that the increase in demand will affect the ratio of how corn is used. If more corn is sold for ethanol, the cost of corn for food products will continue to rise.

Lawmakers on the other hand believe corn growers and ethanol producers have become too dependent upon the tax incentives. They also argue that laws dictating $12 billion of corn ethanol be integrated into the U.S. fuel supply annually is sufficient government aid.
