Growth Energy Applauds Senate Push for Transparency on Refinery ExemptionsTue, 25 May 2021 08:37:29 CDT
Today, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked U.S. Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), who reintroduced the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Integrity Act. A companion to House legislation introduced in February the bipartisan proposal would bring greater transparency to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) small refinery exemption (SRE) process and ensure refiners apply for exemptions in a timely manner.
“This legislation provides long-overdue transparency for requests to avoid blending more low carbon renewable fuels that are key to America’s low-carbon future,” said Skor. “We applaud Senators Fischer and Duckworth for working to protect the integrity of the RFS so that farmers and biofuel producers, as well as the entire fuel supply chain, across the nation can count on stable demand and continue providing cleaner and more affordable fuel choices at the pump.
“By arming the public with greater information on biofuel exemptions, we can keep oil refineries accountable to following the law and ensure uninterrupted progress toward achieving cleaner air and a healthier climate.”
