Following last week's disappointing Supreme Court decision that would allow the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to grant unnecessary Small Refinery Exemptions (SRAs) from biofuel blend mandates, I quickly wrote a letter to EPA Administrator Michael Regan urging him to uphold the Administration’s commitment to the biofuel industry and not grant these reprieves. The Administration should maximize the use of biofuels to solve our current fuel and energy challenges -- not turn its back on this readily available clean energy solution.

I’ll continue standing up for Iowa’s biofuel producers and farmers in Congress.
