Johnston, IA- The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) is excited to announce Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is once again joining the Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit on February 7.
During 2022, Gov. Reynolds led a successful legislative effort to secure the first-ever state E15 access standard and the first-ever state B30 retailer incentive. Reynolds also led a bipartisan, multi-state effort by Midwest governors to exercise their powers under the federal Clean Air Act to ensure E15 would be available to consumers on a year-round basis.
“Iowa is the leader in biofuels production, and, through rigorous legislative work, Iowa has cemented itself as a leader in biofuels policy,” stated Gov. Reynolds. “Biofuels means so much to Iowa’s economy, farmers and consumers. I am extremely proud of the work Iowa has done to create innovative and groundbreaking policies.”
IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw noted that other states are already seeking to follow Iowa’s lead to ensure their consumers have access to lower cost, higher blend biofuels.
“Gov. Reynolds achieved so much for biofuels in 2022,” stated Shaw. “The long-term impact of her policy victories will go far beyond Iowa’s borders as neighboring states are already seeking to replicate the new Iowa policies. Consumers throughout the Midwest will save literally millions of dollars with higher blends thanks to Gov. Reynold’s leadership.”
The Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit is taking place on February 7 at the Community Choice Convention Center at the Iowa Events Center. Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register to attend and learn more, visit IowaRenewableFuelsSummit.org.
