House Biofuels Caucus calls on EPA to not issue any 2019 SREs

January 13, 2021 |

In Washington, Rep. Cindy Axne (IA-03), co-chair of the House Biofuels Caucus, led a bipartisan letter urging President Trump to direct the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to immediately reject the issuance of any illegal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) waivers.

The letter, which was co-led with House Biofuels Caucus co-chairs Reps. Angie Craig (MN-02), Rodney Davis (IL-13), Dusty Johnson (SD-AL), and Adrian Smith (NE-03), comes as reports suggest that the Trump Administration may grant a number of pending 2019 small refinery exemptions (SREs), despite earlier commitments that the EPA would not approve such waivers and a U.S. Circuit Court decision ruling them illegal.

Reuters reports that the biofuel industry expects the EPA to approve most of the waivers.
