Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is circulating a “dear colleague” letter soliciting support and cosponsors for the Renewable Fuel Standard Elimination Act, which is expected to be introduced soon. The letter encourages members of Congress to sign on as original cosponsors for the act, which would totally eliminate the RFS. Goodlatte introduced similar legislation during the last Congress.

Farm Bureau supports the Renewable Fuel Standard as passed in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 and does not support Goodlatte’s legislation.
