Iowa Farm Bureau Federation statement on U.S. Supreme Court ruling regarding small refinery exemptions
The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau Federation President Craig Hill:
“While we are disappointed in the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling today, we appreciate that the guardrails on biofuel waivers established by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals remain intact. This ruling is a blow for Iowa agriculture and our renewable fuel industry, which is a huge economic driver in our state. The most important thing going forward is for the Biden administration to properly implement the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) as it was written by Congress. President Biden and EPA Administrator Regan have both expressed support for the RFS, and it is imperative to Iowa farmers that the administration continue that pledged support moving forward and take a clear stance against small refinery exemptions to limit the negative impacts this ruling will have on Iowa agriculture.”
