Bold Nebraska Statement on Renewable Fuels Standard

Lincoln — President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency on Monday raised the final Renewable Fuel Standards for 2014, 2015 and 2016.

“Bold Nebraska stands with Pres. Obama as he stands with farmers growing biofuels across Nebraska and rural America,” said Bold Nebraska director Jane Kleeb.

“Renewable fuel takes power away from Big Oil and puts it in the hands of family farmers who know how critical it is to tackle climate change while diversifying family farm income. Big Oil wants the ‘distribution waiver’ in place so they can block biofuel choices at the pump. It is our hope Pres. Obama revisits this critical issue, otherwise Big Oil will remain in control of increasing gas prices hurting family’s pocketbooks and hurting rural America.”
