American Farm Bureau Disappointed in RFS Delay

American Farm Bureau Disappointed in RFS Delay

Statement by Bob Stallman, President, American Farm Bureau Federation, Regarding Delayed Action on 2014 Renewable Fuel Standards:


“Renewable fuels have been a tremendous success story for the nation by reducing our country’s dependence on foreign crude oil, reducing air pollution and providing good-paying jobs within rural America. That is why the American Farm Bureau Federation is disappointed in the Environmental Protection Agency’s notice of delay in issuing 2014 standards for the Renewable Fuel Standard Program. Rather than set 2014 standards by the end of the year, EPA has once again delayed action on the 2014 standards.


“This significant delay and inability of the EPA to set standards for the Renewable Fuel Standard Program creates unneeded uncertainty in the marketplace. Even though EPA took the appropriate course in reconsidering its proposed rule after receiving substantial pushback from rural America, Farm Bureau continues to believe that adhering to the framework of the RFS2 remains the best approach.”
