Growth Energy Thanks Senate Republicans for Pushing to Protect the RFS

Wed, 30 Jun 2021 14:40:16 CDT

Growth Energy Thanks Senate Republicans for Pushing to Protect the RFS Following reports that the Biden Administration is considering bailouts for oil refineries, Iowa Senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley led a strong coalition of Senate Republicans in a letter to the president urging him to uphold the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). In their letter, the Senators referenced President Biden’s campaign promise to “promote and advance renewable energy, ethanol and other biofuel.”

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked Senators Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), as well as Senators Thune (R-SD), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), and Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) for holding the Biden Administration accountable to honoring the president’s commitments on the RFS:

“We’re grateful to our Senate champions for urging President Biden’s Administration to not enact decisions that would reverse course on his commitments to support biofuels,” said Skor. “Biofuels have repeatedly proven to be a solution that can be used today to reduce emissions and help our nation achieve our climate goals. Lowering, waiving, capping, or any backtracking on the RFS damages our ability to decarbonize our vehicle fleet, threatens large agricultural markets, and jeopardizes hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs supported by the biofuel industry. We certainly hope Biden Administration officials, especially at the Environmental Protection Agency, heed this letter, support the RFS, and keep annual conventional biofuels blending targets at 15 billion gallons.”

Skor recently addressed this issue before the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Subcommittee on Rural Development and Energy. Watch her testimony here.
