The Wisconsin Soybean Association is urging widespread support for their biodiesel policy initiative.
The association is specifically asking the state legislature this year for help in four areas:
1. Expand the distribution network for biodiesel fuel throughout the state by instituting tax incentives for wholesale and retail distributors and bulk fuel users.
2. Encourage consumption of biodiesel fuel via incentives for government entities to purchase new diesel vehicles.
3. Adopt a definition of biodiesel that conforms to ASTM D6751 standards.
4. Establish proper testing, laboratory and enforcement resources for biodiesel fuel within the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and/or Department of Commerce.
