I support the decision of the Environmental Protection Agency to carefully consider the widespread implications and severe economic impact of petitions from Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Gov. Bob McDonnell and several other legislators to waive the Renewable Fuels Standard, and to reject these requests.
The creation of innovative incentive programs, such as the Renewable Fuel Standards, is beneficial to the environment and critical to our nation’s energy independence, national security and job creation for rural America.
