New research shows 78% of Iowa voters support boosting the RFS

September 3, 2019 |

In Iowa, new public opinion research shows a decisive 78 percent of voters in Iowa support expanding biofuel usage in the U.S. through the federal Renewable Fuel Standard. In addition, 77 percent of voters said it’s important to them that the president keep his promises on supporting the RFS.

The Iowa Biodiesel Board commissioned the bi-annual survey on biodiesel awareness and biofuel-related political values. Earlier this month, ISA sent a letter to President Trump urging him to put a stop to the “unacceptable” undermining of the RFS, courtesy of waivers to petroleum refiners, and exacerbated by failing to budge on volume increases.

The majority of voters surveyed also said any presidential or congressional candidate’s position on the RFS is important to their vote. Kimberley said he hopes democratic presidential candidates will take note, too.
