In response to the BPC’s report regarding potential legislative and regulatory changes to the RFS, Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis issued the following statement.
“The RFS has and continues to be one of the most successful energy programs of the last 40 years. It has reduced our dangerous dependence on foreign oil, improved our nation’s air quality, and created hundreds of thousands of American jobs. The RFS has a great deal of flexibility built into the program based on the ability of biofuel producers to supply the market. Critics in the oil industry have done everything to tear this program down and continue to push their agenda at every turn. They do not want American-made biofuels to succeed because they are afraid to lose their iron grip on the American fuel market. Unfortunately, this report continues to push some of the same, tired talking points that the oil industry has espoused since the program began.”
