This week in our “Conversations with Biofuel Champions” summer video series, our CEO Emily Skor visited with one of our top champs in the House of Representatives: U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall of Kansas.
Dr. Roger Marshall, congressman for Kansas’ First District, is a fifth generation farm kid who grew up in Butler County, Kansas. After years of service in the Army Reserves and in medical practice, he was elected to Congress in 2016, and now serves on the House Agriculture and House Science, Space and Technology committees.
In his interview with Skor, Dr. Marshall shares the importance of ethanol markets to rural Kansas. He’s been traveling around the district this summer, hearing from farmers and biofuel producers about the hurt caused by small refinery exemptions and trade wars, and the certainty they need from Washington.

In case you missed it, last week, Skor spoke with Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer (D-Iowa) about how interconnected biofuels is with the entire First District of Iowa. Watch it here.
Next week, we’ll hear from U.S. Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.). Be sure to tune in!
We were honored to host @EPAMichaelRegan at our 12th Annual ELC. Administrator Regan participated in a virtual fireside chat with CEO @EmilySkor and discussed EPA's approach to decarbonization and how biofuels fit into the agency’s plan for a cleaner planet. https://t.co/eSQln8kD6c
