Democrat Senators call on Biden administration to restore missing gallons ASAP

January 13, 2021 |

In Washington, U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Tina Smith (D-MN) are calling on the incoming Biden administration to take bold action immediately following the inauguration to support farmers and rural communities by restoring integrity to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) joined Klobuchar and Smith on this request. 

In part, the Senators wrote: ‘The outgoing administration undermined the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which was designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, diversify our fuels, strengthen our national security and drive economic opportunity in America’s heartland. It is critical that the integrity of this policy be restored, and that biofuels be part of your efforts to combat climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the Nation’s largest emitting sector.’
