October 22, 2019 Press Release

WASHINGTON (October 22, 2019) – House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson of Minnesota voiced his support following an announcement today that the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on the Environment and Climate Change will review the nation’s biofuel-blending requirements, and specifically the Environmental Protection Agency’s granting of Small Refinery Exemption waivers and the Administration’s plans to reallocate those waived gallons of biofuel.

October 16, 2019 Press Release

“Farmers in my district are struggling from depressed commodity prices and an ugly wet harvest. The Administration has yet to say how they will address the 4 billion gallons of lost biofuels demand from waivers previously granted or produce a concrete plan to meet the annual 15 billion gallon requirement set in law. The EPA’s announcement yesterday falls short of the promises made by the President, and doesn’t undo the damage done to farmers and biofuel producers.”

“Next week the President is expected to be in Minnesota and I look forward to hearing details about how his EPA will get back to the 15 billion gallons that are promised in law and address the 4 billion gallons lost in waivers that have already been granted. Until we have answers to those questions today’s announcement is just another IOU to struggling farmers and shuttered biofuel plants.”
