Bi-partisan representatives send letter to EPA slamming the RFS

November 2, 2017 |

In Washington, 64 bipartisan Members of the United States House of Representatives, led by Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Peter Welch (D-Vt.), Steve Womack (R-Ark.), and Jim Costa (D-Calif.), sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt emphasizing the negative impacts of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) on American consumers and the economy and urging the Agency to acknowledge the significant pitfalls and costs of the federal ethanol mandate in future rulemaking. The letter alleges “the RFS has raised the cost of livestock production, increased food price volatility and insecurity, decreased fuel efficiency, damaged small-engine equipment, hurt the environment, and chipped away at household budgets.”
