Growth Energy Praises Bicameral Democrat Support of RFS, Certainty for Biofuels

Thu, 17 Jun 2021 09:19:33 CDT

Growth Energy Praises Bicameral Democrat Support of RFS, Certainty for Biofuels Today, Democrat members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate took action together on behalf of farmers and biofuels producers across the country. Following reports that the Biden Administration is considering reducing biofuel blending obligations to appease oil refiners, 16 Members of Congress sent a letter to Michael Regan, Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Brian Deese, Director of the National Economic Council, urging the administration to reject granting handouts to the oil industry. In the following statement, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor praised the Members' united front:

“The reported handouts to oil companies looking to avoid their biofuel blending obligations would be a complete reversal of the Biden Administration’s repeated and unequivocal promises to support clean energy jobs and uphold the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard,” said Skor. “Giving in to oil refiners’ repeated claims of economic strain would also backtrack our nation’s progress of moving toward a cleaner energy transportation future through higher biofuel blends.

“This bicameral letter from Democratic members who represent a wide constituency, reflects broad national support of cleaner fuel choices. We thank the 16 Members of the House and Senate for backing our industry and will continue pushing for Administrator Regan and Director Deese to stand with clean, homegrown biofuels.”
