Iowa Farm Bureau responds to EPA announcement on biofuels
The following statement can be attributed to IFBF President Craig Hill:
"Today’s announcement by EPA demonstrates the need for consistency and transparency in the agency’s administration of the RFS. The shifts in how the RFS has been administered has a detrimental impact on farmers and the biofuels industry. Farmers want and need the EPA to follow the spirit and intent of the law. Biofuels have proven to be effective at lowering fuel prices, lowering emissions, and improving our rural economy. Anything short of full implementation of the RFS would have harmful effects on agriculture, and farmers will continue to advocate that the EPA fulfills its promises made to support biofuels and farmers."
