MEDIA ADVISORY: Governor Reynolds to Hold Press Conference on Threat of Recent EPA Proposals to Iowa Jobs
October 17, 2017
Contact: Cassidy Walter
JOHNSTON, IOWA – Governor Kim Reynolds is joining the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, Iowa Biodiesel Board, and Iowa farmers to discuss the threat recent EPA proposals pose to the future of the biofuels industry, which supports tens of thousands of jobs across rural Iowa.
EPA recently announced it is considering cuts to the RFS for biodiesel and advanced biofuels. In addition, several news outlets have reported EPA is considering allowing ethanol exports to generate RINs for RFS compliance, which would effectively be a greater than one billion-gallon cut to the 15 billion-gallon conventional RFS target. The public comment period on these proposed actions closes on Thursday, October 19.
DATE: Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg
Monte Shaw, Executive Director of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association
