Growth Energy Applauds Democrat Effort to Include Biofuels in Budget Process

Fri, 03 Sep 2021 14:20:40 CDT

Growth Energy Applauds Democrat Effort to Include Biofuels in Budget Process Today, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor applauded Senator Amy Klobuchar’s efforts to include support for homegrown, renewable biofuels in Congress’ upcoming budget reconciliation process.

In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Klobuchar, joined by Senators Smith, Duckworth, Durbin, and Baldwin, and Representatives Craig, Axne, Bustos, and Pocan, called on Congressional leadership to include in reconciliation key biofuel initiatives, including the following:

· Biofuel Infrastructure and Agricultural Market Expansion Act
· Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act
· Low Carbon Biofuel Credit Act
· Clean Fuels Vehicle Act
· Biodiesel Tax Credit Extension Act
· Extension of the Second-Generation Biofuel Producer Tax Credit

“Providing additional market access for higher blends of low carbon fuels in the budget reconciliation process will create jobs in rural communities, lower the price of fuel for consumers at the pump, reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and, most importantly, decrease carbon emissions,” the members wrote.

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor applauded Senator Klobuchar and the coalition of senators and representatives for fighting for the biofuels industry. “We’re currently working with our U.S. Senate and House champions on a number of biofuels issues before Congress, including a legislative effort to allow retailers to sell E15 year-round,” Skor said. “Including these initiatives would return certainty to the biofuels market as we face continued regulatory uncertainty from the administration.

“These Members of Congress have long been advocates for biofuels producers and rural America, and we are grateful for their efforts to strengthen the production and sale of renewable biofuels.”
