One of those giving testimony in Des Moines this morning at the Hearing in the Heartland hosted by Iowa Governor Terry Branstad was State Renewable Fuel Executive Director Monte Shaw.  He directed his comments on the RFS volumetric proposal to both President Obama and the EPA.

Shaw says the present administration is responsible for this flawed RFS proposal.

He agrees with Senator Grassley that it will take the President’s involvement  to correct this flawed standard.

Shaw says both President Obama and EPA are completely out of touch with how this proposal impacts rural America. RFS proponents want EPA to raise the renewable fuel obligations to 14.4  billion gallons.
