Bipartisan group of Senators ask EPA to prioritize the RFS and biofuels

February 2, 2022 |

In Washington, 14 Democrat and Republican Senators have written a bipartisan letter urging the Environmental Protection Agency to prioritize the Renewable Fuel Standard and to support biofuel.

Specifically, the lawmakers call on the Biden administration to maintain the blending requirements for 2022; deny all pending Small Refinery Exemptions (SREs); eliminate proposed retroactive cuts to the renewable volume obligations (RVOs); and set 2021 RFS volumes at the statutory levels.

The senators write that by the Biden administration taking those actions, “the EPA can quickly restore integrity, stability, and growth to the RFS and the U.S. biofuel sector while ensuring that the program continues to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, diversify our fuels, drive down gas prices, strengthen our national security, and drive rural economic opportunity.”
