Renewable Fuel Association Says Ethanol Targeted For More Attacks

Renewable Fuel Association Says Ethanol Targeted For More Attacks

The Renewable Fuel Association says attacks are mounting in Congress on ethanol and the renewable fuel standard. One of the latest battles is over 2014 RFS blending requirements which have yet to be released. Virginia Congressman Bob Goodlatte is mounting a campaign and has gathered 150 supporters in seeking to reduced those volume requirements. RFA’s Geoff Cooper says Goodlatte is representing special interest groups in the fight.

Cooper says his group won’t give up in defending the RFS and says the statistics are on their side.

He says it’s a dog fight to retain the RFS but they aren’t backing down.

Cooper says his group keeps reminding everyone that the RFS is generating jobs, reducing the nation’s reliance on foreign oil and stimulating investment in new energy technology.
