Bipartisan Senate Letter Urges EPA to Reflect Congress' Goals for RFS

Sioux Falls, SD (April 23, 2015) – Biofuel supporters in the Senate today have sent a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy urging the agency to, “Take this opportunity to reverse course from the 2014 proposed rule and craft targets for domestic biofuels that reflect Congress’ intended goals for the RFS.”

ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings issued the following statement on the letter.

“Convincing Senators to sign the RFS to Administrator McCarthy was a key part of our grassroots fly-in last month so we’re glad ACE members could play such an instrumental role in securing so many signatures,” said ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings.  “We are also grateful for the strong bipartisan support conveyed by Senators that EPA must get the RFS back on track for implementation by reversing course from their ill-advised proposal which would have limited renewable fuel use at ten percent of gasoline consumption.”
