Biofuels Caucus Co-Chairs send letter in support of Renewable Volume Obligations

WASHINGTON - Congressman Collin C. Peterson today led a letter with fellow Co-Chairs of the bipartisan Biofuels Caucus to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler in regards to the 2019 Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) within the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

The letter strongly encourages the Administration to reduce federal regulations on ethanol instead of implementing policies that only work against farmers and slow the biofuels market down.

“As co-chairs of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus, we understand how the ethanol industry creates jobs and boosts rural economies,” the lawmakers wrote. “Farmers and ethanol producers across rural America are struggling, and the EPA needs to be held accountable for making their problems worse by weakening the RFS.”
