WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked members of the House Biofuels Caucus for their efforts to protect rural jobs and farm income threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Led by Reps. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Dave Loebsack (D-Iowa), and Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), 32 members of the caucus sent a letter urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to “take immediate action to ensure plants can retain skilled workers and continue production when market conditions improve.” The letter echoes a call to action issued earlier this week by Senate leaders.
“We’re grateful for the relentless efforts of House leaders to protect the farmers, biofuel workers, and rural businesses hit hardest by this crisis. Biofuel plants across the country have been forced to halt production, and the spike in unemployment and loss of farm income is crippling rural communities. The USDA should act quickly to deliver the relief approved by Congress and protect the economic engine that will fuel America’s recovery in the months ahead.”
