Senators Support RFS
EPA’s McCarthy Pressed to Stick to Original 2007 Law
“A bipartisan group of 39 senators on Friday sent a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy pressing for a Renewable Fuel Standard as was intended by the 2007 law. However, the question remains: Where does support for the RFS stand among the other 61 senators?
Bob Dinneen, president and chief executive officer of the Renewable Fuels Association, said he doesn’t think the number of senators signing the letter means the RFS lacks majority support.
“Other senators are sending their own letters, and many, many senators don’t have a dog in the fight and will not engage either way. It demonstrates we have far more if it came to a vote,” Dinneen said.”
