WASHINGTON – House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson today made the following statement after the EPA released its 2014-2016 Renewable Fuels Standard targets.

“A strong biofuels industry is an essential component of the rural economy and necessary to achieving our full potential of producing the next generation of domestic biofuels. Today’s announcement isn’t everything we wanted, but is an improvement on the disastrous proposed rule. The Administration deserves credit for listening to our concerns and now needs to immediately start work on the numbers and get the program back on track.”
