Rural Biorefinery Workers Urge White House: “Stand Strong on the RFS”

March 8, 2018 |

In Washington, managers at 150 biofuel production centers across the heartland sent a letter to President Donald Trump, urging the White House to “stand strong in defense of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).” In it, they directly address the campaign waged by Texas Senator Ted Cruz to “cut, cap, or eliminate” the market for U.S. biofuels manufactured from renewable farm crops.

“After four straight years of declining agricultural income, your steadfast support of homegrown biofuels has been a lifeline for the farm economy, and we are deeply grateful to you for upholding the campaign promises made to our workers, our families, and all our rural neighbors,” wrote the plant managers to President Trump. “We ask that you send a clear and final signal that this administration will no longer entertain misleading schemes designed to kill the RFS.”
