Washington, D.C. — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement today after Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Ia.) led a bipartisan group of senators in calling for the Senate to confirm Bill Northey as a U.S. Department of Agriculture undersecretary.
“We applaud Sen. Grassley for stepping up today and calling for a stop to the hold on Bill Northey’s nomination,” Skor said.
“It’s time for the Senate to clear Mr. Northey so that our nation has the leadership in place to move forward on critical issues impacting the American agriculture industry. Sen. Ted Cruz has held Mr. Northey hostage as a means to drag out his so-called ‘negotiation’ to lower RIN prices, when all this time there has been a solution staring us in the face – RVP relief.”
