Corn growers form committee to influence VeraSun hearings


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A committee has been formed to help protect corn growers within the VeraSun bankruptcy hearings.

The Iowa Corn Growers Association, along with national corn grower advocacy groups, helped create the committee at the hearing in Delaware on Tuesday.

The bankruptcy judge welcomed the committee and told lawyers for VeraSun to make sure phone calls from the corn growers and their lawyers are answered. In addition, a specific lawyer from VeraSun was assigned to corn grower issues.

"We are making great strides to create open communication between corn growers, VeraSun and the court. The fact that corn growers from many states and have banded together really impressed the court and other parties in the case," ICGA president Gary Edwards said.

VeraSun filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection late last month.
