Nebraska Ethanol Leader Says Not A Good Time To Reform The RFS

Nebraska Ethanol Leader Says Not A Good Time To Reform The RFS

Illinois Congressman John Shimkus says a repeal of the Renewable Fuel Standard is off the table because there are not enough votes. He’s heading a Republican task force to reform the RFS.  Nebraska Ethanol Board Administrator Todd Sneller says not only is repeal a bad idea, so is any reform.

Sneller says policy certainty is not only needed for corn based ethanol but especially for advanced renewables which are just poised to take off.

Task force members include Representatives Shimkus along with Lee Terry of Nebraska, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Steve Scalise of Louisiana. One reform the group is looking at includes reducing the annual blending mandates.
