Herseth SandlinA South Dakota congressional representative supports increasing the Renewable Fuels Standard in the energy bill and fires back at critics of ethanol.

According to an article in the Daily Republic, U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin says opponents of the biofuel industry are using “misguided and inaccurate” claims in an attempt to derail the growth of renewable fuels.

While discussing her hopes for the pending energy bill, Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., this week said “traditional opponents of biofuels have once again set their sights on the renewable fuels industry.”

“… They are using misguided and inaccurate arguments in an attempt to derail aggressive provisions for the future of home-grown renewable fuels like ethanol,” Herseth Sandlin said.

Herseth Sandlin supports raising the RFS to 36 billion gallons by 2022.
