Growth Energy's Tom Buis Offers Thumbs Up on Senate Farm Bill Passage

Mon, 10 Jun 2013 18:14:55 CDT

Growth Energy's Tom Buis Offers Thumbs Up on Senate Farm Bill Passage Following the U.S. Senate's approval of the 2013 Farm Bill by 66-27, Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy released the following statement:

"I commend the Senate for approving the 2013 Farm Bill. This legislation contains important provisions that will incentivize the production of renewable fuels to decrease our dependence on foreign oil and create jobs right here at home.

"Specifically, the $900 million in mandatory funding to critical rural energy programs will help provide the certainty investors and businesses need to keep making renewable fuels from diverse feedstocks, from corn stover to woody biomass to municipal solid waste.

"By including programs such as the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP), theBiomass Crop Assistance Program, and the Biorefinery Assistance Program, the Senate has reiterated its vote of confidence in our nation's renewable fuels sector. America's robust farm communities are the heart of our nation, our economy and our future I applaud the Senate for recognizing their critical importance.

"There's still work to be done, however. Now that the Senate has approved their version of the Farm Bill, I urge their colleagues in the House of Representatives to follow suit. America's farmers and energy producers need a Farm Bill that supports the heart of nation, and encourages innovation and economic growth."
