WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked a bipartisan group of Senators for sending a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack calling on him to provide COVID-19 financial assistance for the biofuels industry:

“We’re grateful to our Senate biofuels champions for their bipartisan effort in asking USDA to use COVID funding for biofuels relief assistance. Biofuel producers, farmers, and others throughout the biofuels supply chain have been hit hard financially over the course of the pandemic and securing much-needed financial assistance would bring relief and certainty as they look ahead to a brighter year and build back what was lost.

“Secretary Vilsack understands the critical role the biofuels industry plays in supplying critical co-products, providing cleaner fuel choices to American drivers, and supporting the rural economy. We look forward to working with him on a solution.”
