Iowa Congressman becoming “very concerned” about EPA’s Regan

A member of the House Agriculture Committee is becoming concerned with the person in charge at EPA.

Iowa Republican Randy Feenstra tells Brownfield he had a great conversation with Administrator Michael Regan a few weeks back when Regan visited his district.

“Well, since that time there’s been a lot of concern, especially when it comes to the policy under Obama, the Waters of the U.S. and how he wants to go back to that.”

Last month, the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers announced plans to revise the definition of WOTUS under the Clean Water Act.

Feenstra is also worried about biofuels under Regan’s watch.

“When he talks, it’s always about having renewable fuels for aircraft, boats, ships, and things like that, but it’s never for cars and vehicles.”

Citing a recent Department of Energy study that said by 2050 almost 80 percent of cars on the road will still run on liquid fuels, Feenstra says he’s urging Administrator Regan to expand and grow biofuels through the Renewable Fuel Standard.
