The governor of Nebraska testified at the Environmental Protection Agency hearing in Kansas City today on the importance of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) being implemented as intended by Congress. The governor also took part in a Fuels America press conference during the hearing this morning.
“The Renewable Fuel Standard is one of the most successful energy policies adopted by Congress,” said Gov. Pete Ricketts in his testimony. “The RFS laid a foundation for biofuels to provide consumers with renewable fuel choices in a market controlled by the petroleum industry.”
