Growth Energy Praises Bipartisan Farm Bill

Growth Energy Praises Bipartisan Farm Bill
Following the release of the final conference report for the 2014 Farm Bill, Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy released the following statement:


"I commend both the House and Senate negotiators for finding a solid compromise to help move American farm policy forward and provide rural America and farmers with the certainty they need. Not only are these measures important for the farmers who provide America with their food and fiber, but this legislation also provides the necessary incentives to continue to develop fuels from the farm.


"I am pleased to see that the Agriculture Act of 2014 establishes $881 million in mandatory funding for the Energy Title. With this funding, critical programs such as the Biorefinery Assistance Program, Rural Energy for America Program and Biomass Crop Assistance Program will continue to provide the funding necessary for rural America to develop new methods and feedstocks for producing energy from America's heartland.


"The bottom line is that this legislation helps create jobs in rural America and advances first and next generation biofuel production that will help improve our environment and reduce our dangerous addiction to foreign oil.


"I hope that both the House of Representatives and the Senate can pass this legislation soon, without hesitation, and that President Obama can sign this into law, finally providing rural America with the certainty and federal agriculture policy it deserves."
