DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa lawmakers want it known that they oppose a proposal that would reduce the amount of ethanol in the nation's fuel supply.

Legislators in the state House and state Senate voted Thursday in favor of resolutions supporting the existing fuel standards. They are reacting to a recent proposal from the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce the amount of ethanol that must be blended with gasoline in 2014.

The resolutions are purely symbolic.

Iowa is the nation's leading producer of ethanol, a fuel additive primarily made from corn that produces lower carbon emissions than gasoline. The EPA proposal drew outcry by political leaders from both parties who claimed such a move would devastate Iowa's economy.
