Thank you, Rep. Peterson, @RepDustyJohnson, @daveloebsack, @RodneyDavis & @RepMarshall, for the RFS Integrity Act. Farmers and #biofuel producers need transparency on decisions that directly impact their bottom line, and especially when it comes to small refinery exemptions. https://t.co/cH6nbRywJE

Nice crop watcher report from @NieuwenhuisSeed. And on @EPA: "I’m glad they made the decision to stop undermining the #RFS with waivers. The frustrating part is when they decide to not break the law they act as if they’re doing you a favor!" https://t.co/keJVp8W7Fl
