June 30, 2014 |

In Washington, Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, fired back against the CBO with the following statement in response to a recent report entitled, “Renewable Fuel Standard: Issues for 2014 and Beyond,” a highly flawed and unrealistic evaluation of the importance of renewable fuels and their numerous benefits, Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy released the following statement:

This report looks at unrealistic scenarios and completely ignores the very goals of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which are to decrease our nation’s dangerous dependence on foreign oil, create jobs and spur economic growth and investment, and improve our environment, all while offering consumers a choice and savings at the pump. The CBO report simply shrugs off these critical policy goals contained in the RFS by noting that, ‘CBO did not account for that effect in this analysis.’
