Dear Mr. President…

October 15, 2014

After taking a few days to review the letter Senators Markey (D-NH) and Boxer (D-CA) sent you regarding the EPA’s recommendation to lower the Renewable Fuel Standard, we’ve taken the liberty of making sure you had a version that aligns with reality.

Check out our corrected letter below, which fact checks the many oversights on the environmental soundness of this policy and the viability of cellulosic ethanol — the second generation biofuels that the policy was supposed to stimulate but after hundreds of millions of federal dollars have yet to appear.

Refiners also took the opportunity this week to urge the administration to consider the consequences of raising the final mandate, this late in the year, for consumers.

Tell Senators Markey and Boxer to check their work!
