Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked 19 members of Congress who sent a letter demanding regulators uphold biofuel targets under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The lawmakers, led by Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) and Danny K. Davis (D-IL), called on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) halt refinery waivers that contribute to “higher gas prices and elevated levels of harmful emissions, especially in communities of color.”
“Families all across the nation are breathing cleaner air and saving money at the pump thanks to homegrown biofuels,” said Skor. “The EPA’s refinery exemptions threaten to undermine that progress, destroying demand for billions of gallons of cleaner, more affordable fuel. We are grateful to our congressional leaders for their efforts to preserve the integrity of the RFS and safeguard the health and well-being of American families.”
