BiodieselFrom Press Release


U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Wednesday encouraged Iowans and others knowledgeable about biofuels to comment on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Renewable Fuel Standard volume requirements for 2014, 2015 and 2016.  Grassley made the following statement urging Iowans to comment.

“The EPA doesn’t have a good idea of what’s happening in biofuels.  Instead, the agency has been listening to Big Oil’s hand-wringing and obstruction.  The EPA needs to hear from the people who produce ethanol and biodiesel every day and have the will and the capacity to produce even more.  Iowans ought to tell their story and not let Big Oil tell it for them.”

The public comment field is available here.    Grassley’s comment on the proposed rule is available here.

Grassley and a bipartisan group of fellow senators have urged the EPA to follow its commitments on biofuels.  Their letters from earlier this year are available here and here.
