Growth Energy Testifies in RFS Hearing

Tom Buis submits witness testimony in support of the Renewable Fuel Standard.

WASHINGTON, D.C. Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis is scheduled to testify before the Energy and Power Subcommittee of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce during Tuesday’s second panel of a two-day hearing entitled, “Overview of the Renewable Fuel Standard: Stakeholder Perspectives.” Today, in advance of his appearance in front of the committee, Buis submitted his written testimony.

In the testimony, Buis outlines his support for the RFS and the renewable fuel industry, calling it a resounding success that has created American jobs, revitalized rural America and injected much-needed competition into a monopolized liquid fuels market. The industry, thanks to the RFS, has lowered prices at the pump, improved the environment and made our nation more energy independent.

The testimony urges the committee to stay true to the RFS, a policy that is working and already showing results—America is on the brink of energy independence and energy diversity. Now is not the time to disrupt this success and interfere with the progress of the American biofuels industry.
