Past NCBA President Testifies In Favor Of EPA RFS Volume Requirement Plan

Thursday, EPA took testimony on their 2014 proposal to lower the RFS volume requirements for biofuels.   Past National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Steve Foglesong,  an Illinois producer commented in favor of the proposal. He says the current RFS has been costly for the livestock industry.

Foglesong says it’s time for the renewable fuel industry to stand on its own without government assistance.

He says both grain farmers and livestock producers use corn and it’s time to look at reforming the RFS and let the market pick the winners and losers instead of the government.

Foglesong is urging stakeholders to work together to a long term compromise on the RFS.
