The EPA has proposed slashing the RFS — legislation that sets targets for the amount of clean, renewable and homegrown biofuels to blend in the U.S. fuel supply — by 4 million gallons below what Congress originally intended.
This isn’t just bad news for corn farmers and biofuels supporters, it’s bad news for anyone who drives a car and all Americans. Thanks to the RFS, we’re paying less at the pump, cutting our dependence on foreign oil and cleaning our air by blending our gasoline supply with ethanol.
Now is not the time for America to go backwards with its energy policy. The EPA is accepting public comments on its proposal to slash the RFS through July 27. The Minnesota Corn Growers Association has made it easy to submit your comments in minutes and make your voice heard:
- Go to www.mncorn.org and click on the “Don’t mess with the RFS” tab.
- From there, you can either submit a comment online, or print a farmer or non-farmer letter to sign and submit.
That’s it. It’s that simple. It only takes a minute or two to stand up for ethanol and make your voice heard.
