ACE Endorses the Renewable Fuel Standard Integrity Act

Sioux Falls, SD (February 19, 2021) –Representative Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) and Representative Angie Craig (D-Minn) led Co-Chairs of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus in introducing the Renewable Fuel Standard Integrity Act, legislation that addresses the timing and transparency issues associated with the small refinery exemption (SRE) program under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) CEO Brian Jennings issued the following statement in support:

“ACE thanks Representatives Johnson and Craig for leading the reintroduction of this bipartisan legislation to ensure the statutory volumes of the Renewable Fuel Standard are enforced by restoring transparency and integrity to EPA’s handling of small refinery exemptions. This legislation is necessary because under President Trump, EPA brazenly granted nearly 90 waivers for small refineries, erasing over 4 billion gallons from the RFS volumes established by Congress. As of today, 66 additional refinery waivers are pending.”
