Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today commended the Administration’s decision to approve an increase in biodiesel usage through the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) from 1 billion to 1.28 billion gallons for 2013.  Loebsack has led efforts in the House of Representatives to ensure the inclusion of a biodiesel standard in the RFS, as well as to reinstate the biodiesel tax credit.

“The updated standard will bring more certainty to the biodiesel industry,” said Loebsack.  “This growing industry creates good paying jobs for Iowans and helps to shore up rural economies.  This updated standard for 2013 will help ensure that biodiesel continues to thrive in Iowa and provide employment and economic growth.”
