Growth Energy Applauds Senate Letter to EPA

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 10:51:11 CDT

Today, a bipartisan group of 39 Senators sent a letter urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that the final blending targets under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) for 2017 will promote growth in the U.S. biofuels sector and capitalize on economic opportunity instead of driving investment overseas. Emily Skor, Growth Energy CEO, issued the following statement:

“The letter is unequivocal in outlining the need to keep our progress in biofuels production intact and in urging EPA to issue a final rule putting the RFS program back on track with blending targets that match Congress’ intended levels.

“We must not turn back the clock on the progress we have made, and commend these Senators for protecting America’s security and economy through the RFS. The EPA must return stability to this policy to ensure that we keep America moving forward. The RFS decreases our dependence on foreign oil, improves our environment by reducing harmful emissions and displacing toxic chemicals found in gasoline, and gives American consumers a choice of a less expensive, higher performing fuel.

“The RFS is our nation’s most successful energy policy. We stand united with this group of bipartisan Senators in sending a message to EPA that our support for this policy is unwavering, and that EPA must set the final RVO volumes to 15 billion gallons as Congress intended.”
