WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement regarding the Senate’s confirmation of President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Agriculture, former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.

“We congratulate Secretary Perdue on his confirmation to lead the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and look forward to working with him to advance the biofuels industry and move American agriculture forward.

“The success of rural America is inextricably linked to a strong Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and growing adoption of higher ethanol blends at the pump. The USDA has played an integral role in this success and we are excited to see Secretary Perdue’s plans to continue leading the way in protecting the economic wellbeing of America’s farmers, while giving consumers the choice for homegrown biofuels at the pump.”
