Charles T. Drevna, President of the AFPM has made the following statement on the Renewable Fuel Standard Reform Act and the Renewable Fuel Standard Elimination Act, two bills that would significantly reform or repeal the RFS.
“Reps. Bob Goodlatte, Peter Welsh, Steve Womack and Jim Costa should be commended for leading a bipartisan effort to revisit the nation’s broken ethanol mandate. The federal government mandating what Americans put in their gas tanks was a flawed policy from the start. The so called RFS has not only failed to live up to its original objectives, it actively works against them. Today’s measures are important first steps towards repealing or significantly reforming this anti consumer program, which is no longer needed or wanted.”
