Senators Pressing EPA To Set RFS for Biodiesel

Thirty-two senators have written a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy asking for quick approval of strong biodiesel volumes under the Renewable Fuel Standard for 2014, 2015 and 2016.

EPA has not finalized the 2014 RFS, while the 2015 standard for biodiesel is a year late and the 2016 standard, also lacking, was to have been announced by December 2014, said the Feb. 9 letter from the Republican and Democratic senators.»
