FR:      Mike Naig, Iowa Deputy Secretary of Agriculture
TO:      Iowa Reporters and Editors
RE:      Renewable Volume Obligations set by EPA
DA:     Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017

Iowa Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) announcing the 2018 renewable volume obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program.

“I appreciate the Trump administration maintaining their commitment to the RFS in putting forward these renewable volume obligations.  That said, I am disappointed they did not do more, particularly on biodiesel.  The RFS as passed and signed into law was designed to support the growth of the biofuels industry, and the levels announced are a lost opportunity. We will continue to work with the Governor’s office and renewable fuels industry to support a strong RFS going forward.”
