Growth Energy Thanks Senators Klobuchar and Fischer for Fighting for the Renewable Fuel Standard

Thu, 22 Apr 2021 07:59:36 CDT

Growth Energy Thanks Senators Klobuchar and Fischer for Fighting for the Renewable Fuel Standard Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) led 10 Senators in sending a bipartisan letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asking Administrator Michael Regan to restore integrity to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and reject pandemic-driven requests to waive or reduce renewable volume obligations (RVOs). Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement thanking the senators:

“We’re grateful for Senators Klobuchar’s and Fischer’s leadership in underscoring to EPA that restoring integrity to the RFS will assist in the economic recovery of rural America and help the Administration reach its climate goals. EPA should not give in to oil refiners’ claims that renewable volume obligations should be reduced because of COVID-driven demand reductions when EPA itself just recently told the Supreme Court that ‘...creating incentives for market participants to replace petroleum fuels with renewable fuels is a core purpose of the RFS.’

“We are continuing to work with Administrator Regan, the Biden Administration, and our biofuels champions in Congress to ensure the RFS is followed as Congress intended.”
