RFA Says Pruitt's Resignation Brings End to EPA's War Waged Against Renewable Fuels Standard

Thu, 05 Jul 2018 16:19:04 CDT

RFA Says Pruitt's Resignation Brings End to EPA's War Waged Against Renewable Fuels Standard This afternoon, President Trump announced the resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen had the following statement:



“For the past year, Scott Pruitt had been waging war against the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), the biofuels industry, and the millions of farmers and rural Americans who helped Donald Trump get elected. It appears these missteps finally caught up with Mr. Pruitt, who apparently thought that RFS stood for ‘Refinery First Strategy.’ Mr. Pruitt’s failure to follow President Trump’s directive to remove the red tape that restricts E15 from being sold in the summertime likely played a part in his demise, and the straw that broke the camel’s back may have been Mr. Pruitt’s recent proposal for 2019 RFS requirements that failed miserably to repair damages done to our nation’s farmers and biofuel producers.



“So, that sound you hear is a collective sigh of relief coming from the Midwest. We look forward to working with Acting Administrator Andy Wheeler, whose long career focusing on policies that recognize economic growth and environmental protection are not mutually exclusive is not undermined by an unmistakable anti-ethanol, anti-farmer bias.”
