Grassley urges EPA to strengthen biodiesel volumes

A letter circulating in the Senate this week is urging the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to strengthen the final biodiesel volumes in the pending Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) rule.

The letter, sponsored by Sens. Charles Grassley (R-IA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), maintains that while the proposed rule is a step in the right direction after major delays—it still fails to recognize the domestic biodiesel industry’s full production potential.»
