WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor today thanked the Governors’ Biofuels Coalition, led by Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota and Tim Walz of Minnesota, who wrote a letter today urging House and Senate leaders to “ensure that relief for the biofuels industry is included in phase 4 of the Covid-19 emergency relief package that is currently making its way through Congress.”

“We’re grateful to Governors Walz and Noem for lending their continued support to our champions in the House and Senate, who are fighting to ensure the needs of America’s farmers and biofuel producers are addressed in ongoing relief efforts,” said Skor. “It’s critical that Congress and the U.S. Department of Agriculture act swiftly to deliver relief for thousands of rural communities, where the entire agricultural supply chain has been threatened by the closure of plants and lost markets for America’s farmers.”

I’m proud to stand up for our farmers and producers as a @GrowthEnergy Biofuels Champion. Our biofuels provide good-paying jobs and the clean energy that keeps America running — when they’re strong, Iowa is strong. #IA01 https://t.co/96cepXXW0T

Representative @daveloebsack took time to advocate for biofuels in the House Committee for Energy and Commerce yesterday. We need oversight like this to ensure gap-filings from the oil industry don't become another source of harm for our producers. Thank you, Congressman! https://t.co/JRDYxzgq67
