Southeast South Dakota Farmers Push Against EPA RFS Volume Rule

Southeast South Dakota Farmers Push Against EPA RFS Volume Rule

District One Farmers Union leaders representing nine Southeast South Dakota counties are asking their members and others to comment against EPA’s RFS volume requirement proposal.  District President Frank Kloucek of Scotland says their group last month passed a resolution in support of the RFS and are now encouraging action on the EPA proposal.

Kloucek says he’s hoping the lowering of the volume requirement in the EPA proposal won’t hold up and  they’ll be able to convince regulators to change that with their comments.

He says those who wish to comment have until January 28 to get that done. He says you can go to the Growth Energy or American Coalition for Ethanol websites to comment. He also says people should write to Congress about it.
