This paper studies the ethanol production industry in Iowa and its linkages to the overall corn milling industry in the state. The work was instigated by questions concerning the effects of tax abatements on ethanol blended fuels. While the direct incidence of tax abatement changes is not analyzed, the employment, production, and income effects of incremental changes in corn milling activity that result from changes in ethanol demand are investigated.
