The Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association today offered testimony in
opposition to the recently proposed EPA Rule on the Renewable Fuel Standard.
In establishing the Renewable Fuel Standard, Congress demonstrated a clear and undeniable intent to increase the use of biofuels. Through executing that legislative intent, the RFS has provided security to the nation’s fuel supply and reduced dependency on foreign oil – contributing to stable markets that protect American consumers. The agency, through its recent and unprecedented volume of small refinery waivers, has undercut that legislative intent. The proposed rule we discuss today falls far short of making the RFS whole in 2020 and creates a market of uncertainty for the future.
Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association is asking all farmers to contact the EPA and let them know that they need to account for all waived gallons and to follow the law as intended.
