WASHINGTON DC (November 15, 2019) — Senators Charles "Chuck" Grassley (R-IA), John Thune (R-SD), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Mike Rounds (R-SD), and Roy Blunt (R-MO) today renewed their recommendations to President Donald Trump with respect to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) proposed Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) supplemental rule. The letter, which enclosed their initial comments to EPA, urges the Administration to take corrective action in its RFS rulemaking to uphold the agreement reached between President Trump and Midwest senators on September 12, 2019.

“This supplemental rulemaking is an opportunity to definitively restore integrity to the RFS, provide certainty for American agriculture, and further bolster our energy independence. We are confident that reverting to the agreed upon framework to account for actual waived gallons will deliver on your agenda to support thousands of agriculture jobs throughout the Midwest and nation,” the sens wrote.
