Sioux Falls, SD (February 28, 2018) – The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue reiterated the President’s support of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and biofuels during his keynote address at the 2018 Commodity Classic this morning in Anaheim, California. In response to Secretary Perdue’s remarks, the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) CEO Brian Jennings released the following statement:
