NAT'L ASSN OF WHEAT GROWERS SUBMITS COMMENTS ON THE 2014 RFS
Source: National Association of Wheat Growers news release

National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the proposed 2014 Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO) for the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS).

The NAWG comments stress that changes to the RFS would send the wrong market signals, impacting agricultural markets and investments in new technology and cellulosic biofuels production. NAWG supports the RFS as passed by Congress and opposes EPA's proposed 2014 RVO under the RFS.

House and Senate leaders also expressed concern about the EPA proposal in letters sent to EPA recently.

The RFS has reduced greenhouse gas emissions, increased production of domestic renewable energy and energy security, and encouraged economic development and new technology.

The EPA is accepting comments on the 2014 RFS RVO proposal until Jan. 28, 2014. You can submit comments at regulations.gov or use this website www.saverenewablefuel.org/submit-your-comment
