GROWTH ENERGY WELCOMES EPA REJECTION OF "GAP YEAR" EXEMPTIONS
Source: Growth Energy news release

Washington, D.C. - Growth Energy today welcomed the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) decision to reject so-called 'gap-year' exemptions from the nation's biofuel laws. In total, the agency had received 68 retroactive exemption requests from petroleum refiners seeking to skirt obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and today's move denies the majority of pending requests.

"Today's action lifts a cloud of uncertainty that has been hanging over America's farmers and biofuel producers since June," said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. "We're grateful to farm state champions like Senator Ernst, who has led a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers in the House and Senate and governors across the heartland in speaking out against oil-backed efforts to dodge the law, circumvent the courts, and upend markets.

"Growth Energy looks forward to continuing our work with the White House and leaders in Congress to ensure that we restore integrity to our nation's biofuel targets and that rural communities have the support they need to revitalize growth in the months ahead."
