American Farm Bureau Finds RFS Misses Intent of Congress

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:05:46 CDT

American Farm Bureau Finds RFS Misses Intent of Congress Statement by Bob Stallman, President, American Farm Bureau Federation,
Regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard

“Congress was clear in its intent: The United States can and should produce significantly more ethanol for the nation’s cars and trucks than the EPA has proposed. The Renewable Fuel Standard has produced jobs, decreased reliance on imported oil and contributed to cleaner air. For those reasons, we need more ethanol, not less, and living up to Congressional mandates is the place to begin. We look forward to commenting on the rule and working with both Congress and the Administration to take full advantage of this renewable fuel resource.”

Background: The EPA Friday released targets for the nation’s Renewable Fuel Standard, which determines how much ethanol will be blended into the nation’s gasoline supplies. The new requirements for 2015-2015 are 16.3 billion and 17.4 billion gallons – significantly short of the 16.3 billion and 17.4 billion gallons mandated by Congress for 2015 and 2016, respectively. The EPA proposal will be open for comment beginning July 27 with a final rule expected by Nov. 30
