Farm Progress reports:

A group of U.S. representatives is ramping up support of the Renewable Fuels Standard just days ahead of the deadline to submit comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regarding changes to the policy.

In a letter sent late last week to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, 30 House members said the proposed lower renewable fuel volume obligations are a bad idea.

"By reducing the amount of renewable fuel blended into gasoline lower than in 2013, this rule could hurt rural economies, jeopardize American jobs, raise prices at the pump and deter investment in biofuels and biofuel infrastructure," the legislators wrote.

Public comments on the EPA's proposal will be accepted via the Federal Register until Jan. 28.
