WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked members of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus for their efforts to deliver long-overdue relief to the biofuel sector in the next round of COVID-19 relief legislation. Led by Reps. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Dave Loebsack (D-Iowa), and Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), 31 members of the caucus sent a letter to House and Senate Leadership calling for negotiators to adopt “language explicitly directing” relief to producers and processors of renewable fuels.
“We’re grateful to our congressional champions who are working overtime to stop the bleeding and offer hope for farm communities,” said Skor. “With continued uncertainty around COVID-19, and states, like California, Texas, and Florida returning to lockdown, the stakes are too high to leave any stone unturned. Leaders in Congress must work quickly to protect rural jobs and give us the certainty we need to rebuild America’s agricultural supply chain.”
Today’s letter represented the latest appeal from rural leaders across the nation, including those from members of the Senate and the House, Midwest governors, and 70 mayors across 10 states. With their support, direct assistance to biofuel producers was included in the House-passed HEROS Act, as well as in bipartisan legislation introduced in the Senate. House and Senate lawmakers hope to hammer out a final deal this month.
