Iowa Elected Officials Ask President To Hold RFS Hearing In Iowa

Nine Iowa elected leaders are asking President Obama, the EPA Administrator and Ag Secretary to come to Iowa and hold a hearing on proposed volume changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard. State Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey says it’s critical those affected by the plan and those administering it have a chance to speak with each other about their concerns.

Northey says if the EPA proposal stands, it will cause severe economic harm to not just agriculture but to Iowa’s overall economy.

Northey says he and the other leaders sent a letter to the President, EPA administrator and Ag Secretary expressing strong opposition to EPA’s RFS volume requirement proposal.
