Senator Al Franken working on energy piece for Farm Bill 2018

October 12, 2017 |

In Minnesota, Senator Al Franken is developing an energy proposal as part of the upcoming 2018 Farm Bill seeking to ensure rural America transitions to biofuels and other renewable fuels by tweaking funding programs and linking them with things like biorefineries and fire prevention through use of forest waste. Despite, or because, the Trump administration is souring towards biofuels, the senator is working to find ways that will support rural development through the production and consumption of bioproducts while ensuring clean energy is produced simultaneously.
