Thanks as always to our champions @SenJohnThune, @ChuckGrassley, @SenJoniErnst, @SenatorFischer, @SenatorRounds & @RoyBlunt for working to make sure @EPA keeps President Trump's promise on biofuels. https://t.co/AXLtzCnXnF

I joined @SenJohnThune @ChuckGrassley @SenJoniErnst @SenatorFischer & @RoyBlunt in a letter to @realDonaldTrump to request the EPA change its proposed rule to restore integrity to the Renewable Fuel Standard. 15 billion gallons means 15 billion gallons. https://t.co/veBkthgGki

Reminder to all Iowans: The deadline to submit public comments on the @EPA’s supplemental rule is Nov. 29. 15 billion gallons means 15 billion gallons, and Iowa’s farmers and producers are counting on it. Express your support for upholding the #RFS here: https://t.co/R3MA4qz3s8
