Cindy Zimmerman

Rep. Randy Feenstra (R-IA) is new to Congress this year, winning the seat from Rep. Steve King in Iowa’s 4th congressional district. That district includes includes Sioux City, Ames, Mason City, Fort Dodge, Boone and Carroll so agriculture and biofuels are a big deal for Feenstra.

“I am truly passionate about biofuels and I will be the advocate to further the agenda,” said Feenstra in an interview last week from Washington, D.C. with reporter Tony St. James of Texas.

Feenstra recently joined Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Joni Ernst (R-IA), and Reps. Ashley Hinson (IA-01) and Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02), in sending a letter to President Biden urging him to uphold his promise to support biofuels.

“It is our hope that your Administration will come to the table to support the proven solution that biofuels provide to reduce carbon emissions in the transportation sector as quickly as possible,” the members wrote. “The Administration should support flex-fuel vehicles and cost-effective infrastructure improvements that will pave the way to higher biofuel blends.”
