Young Statement on 2018 RFS volumes and 2019 RVOs
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Iowa Congressman David Young issued the following statement regarding the EPA's rule on the Renewable Fuel Standard volumes for 2018 and 2019 Renewable Volume Obligations for biodiesel.
“While the EPA’s announcement is a great improvement from their previous proposal, I am disappointed the agency didn’t strengthen the biodiesel volume levels.
“The biofuels industry is critical to ensuring America’s energy independence and to Iowa’s economy, which is why the Renewable Fuel Standard was implemented by Congress.
“I was happy to see Iowans engaging with the EPA and appreciate Administrator Pruitt for his responsiveness to our concerns and keeping the promises he made during his confirmation in the Senate.
“I will continue to be a strong advocate for the Renewable Fuel Standard and hold the administration accountable to their commitments.”
