Biodiesel Board Officials Testify In Favor Of RFS

Biodiesel Board Officials Testify In Favor Of RFS

National Biodiesel Board officials testified in front of the House Energy and Commerce committee Tuesday in support of the Renewable Fuel Standard. The panel has been taking testimony on the issue in front of proposed legislation that would adjust or do away with the standard.  Biodiesel Board’s Ben Evans says because of the RFS the biodiesel industry is advancing and has supported some 50,000 jobs.

Evans says attacks are heating up against the RFS and its important voters make their wishes known to Congress and voice support for the standard.

He says in addition the RFS should not be adjusted or opened up for any major changes. He says there already are provisions in the standard that allow it to be changed.

Evans says the RFS means a significant number of jobs for the entire renewable fuels industry as well as tax revenue to help boost the economy
