IA Gov Branstad at Iowa Renewable Fuels SummitIowa Governor Terry Branstad has been selected to become Chair of the Governor’s Biofuels Coalition (GBC) for 2013. Rick Schwarck, president of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, wrote a letter to Branstad, who will be speaking at their upcoming Summit, congratulating him.

“Your leadership and willingness to serve as a great representative of Iowa has been instrumental in helping our state lead the nation in both renewable fuels production and policy. Your work as the original chair of what was then called the Governors’ Ethanol Coalition and your more recent accomplishments as Vice Chair of the GBC have truly helped lift the industry to where it stands today.”

“We look forward to working with you as GBC Chair to continue to expand E15 availability nationwide, maintain the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), and enact stable, long-term tax policies favorable to the further development and growth of the biodiesel and cellulosic ethanol industries.”
