Citing the priority to ensure that Mexico's food needs are secure, President Felipe Calderon has vetoed legislation to create an ethanol industry in Mexico. The veto does not end the effort but requires that Congress make several modifications to the bioenergy law (Ley de Promocion y Desarrollo de los Energeticos), which the Chamber of Deputies approved near the end of its legislative session in April (see SourceMex, 2007-06-06). The initiative that came out of the lower house was based on a similar measure approved in the Senate in 2006.
