Reps Feenstra and Craig introduce bill to clear up SRE extensions

July 5, 2021 |

In Washington, Rep. Randy Feenstra (IA-04) joined Rep. Angie Craig (MN-02) to introduce the Small Refinery Exemption Clarification Act of 2021. This bipartisan proposal clarifies the definition of “extension” in response to the Supreme Court’s recent ruling that favored oil refineries over biofuel producers.

The court’s decision would continue to allow refineries to petition for “extensions” of small refinery exemptions (SREs), even if they have not received exemptions in the past — contrary to the original congressional intent of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). This would leave the door open for SREs to continue being abused.
