In Iowa, with the U.S. Senate on the cusp of approving Scott Pruitt as Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a broad coalition of Iowa farmers, renewable fuel producers, and retailers urged Pruitt to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) by rejecting the petition to change the successful program’s point of obligation. The request would change the RFS obligated parties from mostly large petroleum refiners to many fuel retailers.
The public comment period on the proposed rejection of the petition to change the point of obligation closes on February 22, 2017. After reviewing the public comments, the Trump EPA will make the final decision.
