EPA Publishes Comment Period on RFS Waiver


The following article is from the NAFB News Service:

Northern Ag Network Note:  The comment period is not open yet.  A link will be posted here when the notice is written into the Federal Register.

A 30-day comment period has been established by the Environmental Protection Agency on requests from Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe and North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue last week to waive the Renewable Fuel Standard requirements. So far – the Governors of Maryland and Delaware along with 190 members of the U.S. Congress and a coalition of livestock organizations have argued an RFS waiver is necessary. Virginia Representative Bob Goodlatte encourages those impacted by the RFS mandate to submit their comments to the EPA. EPA has 90-days to make a decision.
