The Governors’ Biofuels Coalition is thanking President-elect Trump for his “repeated statements of support for biofuels and the Renewable Fuel Standard” during his campaign. In the letter the governors pointed out that the  “nation’s biofuels industry has generated thousands of jobs” and will “continue to grow” the states’ economies. The governors also noted they are looking forward to working with his new administration “to advance sound policies that will add value to the agriculture economy.”

In response to the letter, Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) President and CEO Bob Dinneen had the following statement, “We thank Governors Pete Ricketts (Nebraska), Terry Branstad (Iowa) and Dennis Daugaard (South Dakota) for reaching out to President-Elect Trump to thank him for his support for biofuels and the RFS, and highlighting our industry’s economic impact that has rippled throughout the nation. The President-Elect understands the importance of clean, domestic energy resources and the economic power of value-added agriculture. We are confident he will continue to support the RFS and expanded production and use of fuel ethanol during his administration.”
