AAI Submits Comments on Proposed Changes to RFS

This week AAI CEO Joel Brinkmeyer submitted official comments opposing EPA’s proposed rule to drastically lower the levels of ethanol and biodiesel obligations set forth in the Renewable Fuel Standard.

“The proposed reductions will have devastating effects on Iowans that will cascade, not only through our local economies, but across the Nation, adversely impacting businesses and families alike. wrote Brinkmeyer. “In short, in order to continue generating high quality agribusiness jobs, services and products, agribusiness in Iowa depends on maintaining the current RFS levels.”
