Growth Energy Responds to Withdrawal of Anti Consumer Amendment

Growth Energy released the following statement after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) withdrew his anti-consumer amendment (No. 741) to prevent the USDA from funding Flex Fuel pump infrastructure and limit fuels marketplace competition.

“This was an ill-conceived amendment that would have put OPEC further in control of our economy and limited consumer choice at the pump. While the withdrawal of this amendment is an important milestone, we will continue to encourage Congress to oppose any other effort that would erect new barriers to the market,” said Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis.
