Perdue and Reynolds on upcoming biofuels package
October 2, 2019 By Julie Harker Filed Under: News
media reports say President Trump is expected to sign-off on a biofuels package
Friday and publicize it next week.
Secretary Perdue told reporters at World Dairy Expo this week the administration
plans to maintain the minimum 15 billion gallon level,
Trump has insisted that we maintain 15 Billion gallons and even in spite of
small refinery waivers that may mean increasing the offset which the EPA has on
their rules. They can estimate what the award will be.”
Governor Kim Reynolds says she hasn’t yet seen anything in writing yet. Reynolds
was in the Oval Office last month, arguing for a policy that will increase
federal biofuel production and blending requirements. The oil industry has been
pressing against that, “I’m still going to take the president at his word. I
know that he’s worked really hard to help make our farmers and the biofuels
industry whole and so I look forward to seeing in writing the agreement that we
verbally came to.”
Reynolds says if it’s the plan they discussed, she has invited Trump to Iowa to make the announcement.
