Governors urge President Donald Trump to reject proposals that would hurt the RFS.
The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) applauds the letter Midwest governors sent to President Donald Trump this week thanking him for his continued support of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and urging the President to reject proposals designed to weaken – or waive – this key pillar of the farm economy, including Senator Ted Cruz’s waiver credit proposal, or “RIN cap.”
ACE CEO Brian Jennings issued the following statement applauding the governor’s for encouraging President Trump to reject any RIN cap or waiver credit proposal to reduce RFS levels:
“We appreciate the leadership these governors are showing in support of keeping the RFS on track. We hope the administration and Congress will listen to their advice and not take any steps to undermine an already shaky farm economy.”
The letter is signed by six governors, including Kim Reynolds (IA), Pete Rickets (NB), Eric Holcomb (IN), Jeff Colyer (KS), Eric Greitens (MO), and Dennis Daugaard (SD). A copy of the letter can be found here.
