Less than two weeks remain to make sure the EPA hears from the biodiesel industry, showing support for stronger final biodiesel volumes in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The final day to comment is July 27.
The National Biodiesel Board has made it simple to submit comments. Visit www.biodiesel.org and click on the tab for submitting a letter. It will take you to the Fueling Action page where you can fill in your name and contact information and click “Submit”. The comments will go directly to the EPA docket.
While the pre-written comments are ready to be sent as-is, it is encouraged to personalize them. Talk about your role in the industry and why biodiesel and the RFS are important to you and the economy.
The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) would also like to thank Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken for signing a letter of support circulated in the U.S. Senate. The letter will be sent to the EPA with a list of Senate signatures.
