Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) attended a press conference for the National Farmers Union in Washington on Monday to stress support for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
“We’ve learned a lot about biofuels, we’ve done so much better in producing biofuels for things other than crops that we eat and that’s important,” said Senator Reid. “I’m happy about how important our biofuels industry is.”
“I am a huge proponent of the Renewable Fuel Standard, we need to continue to invest in research and development and energy efficiency,” Stabenow said. “It’s about getting us on to homegrown energy and off of foreign oil and it’s about jobs.”
