Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On Supporting the RFS
Tuesday, November 19, 2019
Last week, the Midwest biofuel senators sent a cover letter
with our comments to President Trump.
He’s long been a supporter of biofuels and the EPA shouldn’t undercut President Trump’s support of the RFS.
I urge EPA and Administrator Wheeler to adjust the proposed supplemental rule to account for actual waived gallons using hard data from past practice to send an unambiguous signal to the marketplace.
I am glad to have the opportunity to comment and I encourage all farmers, biofuels producers and others interested in supporting the RFS to comment.
Go to regulations.gov or Iowa Farm Bureau or Iowa Corn websites before the deadline of November 29, 2019.
