Chairman of Senate committee overseeing RFS says will carefully examine hardship waivers

June 25, 2018 |

In Washington, Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW), issued the following statement on the forthcoming biofuel mandate for 2019.

‘I will carefully examine EPA’s proposed rule, especially its impact on small refineries,’ said Barrasso. ‘The law requires EPA to provide relief to any small refinery that suffers disproportionate economic hardship under the Renewable Fuel Standard. EPA must not take any steps that would limit the ability of small refineries to obtain hardship relief in the future. That includes restricting when they can apply for hardship relief or increasing the burdens on other refineries in the process.’

The EPW Committee has jurisdiction over the Renewable Fuel Standard.
