JOHNSTON, IOWA – Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, who has been on the front lines of the fight against refinery exemptions to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) while working diligently on a state level to grow biofuels use in Iowa, will address the 2020 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit this January.
“With the RFS under constant attack, Governor Kim Reynolds has been relentless in her efforts to restore integrity to the federal law,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director Monte Shaw. “We look forward to thanking her for all she’s done and hearing her plans to ensure biofuels use here in Iowa continues to grow.”
In addition to fighting for the RFS on a national stage, Governor Reynolds has consistently supported the Iowa Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program in her annual budget and recently signed an executive order that all new diesel vehicles acquired for the state of Iowa must be approved for B20.
The 2020 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit will take place at the Prairie Meadows Conference Center on January 16, 2020. The Summit is free to attend and open to the public, but registration is required. To register to attend or learn more about the Summit, please visit: IowaRenewableFuelsSummit.org.
