DES MOINES, IOWA (December 8, 2021) – Governor Kim Reynolds has released the following statement in regards to the Biden Administrations announcement on Renewable Volume Obligations:
“Yet again, the Biden Administration has failed Iowans and Iowa’s agriculture industry by destroying demand for over four billions of gallons of renewable fuel. These 2020 and 2021 RVOs are a slap in the face to Iowa farmers and renewable-fuel producers and a direct contradiction of multiple campaign promises made by President Biden.
“This announcement is beyond disappointing, and I have no plans to back down from fighting for our renewable-fuel industry. We will continue to pursue every option at the state and federal level to ensure consumers have access to cost-effective, clean-burning renewable fuels.”
