Tumultuous trade. Uncertain markets. Trying weather from planting to harvest. Farmers are taking hits from all angles, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is adding to it.
The latest blow to corn farmers came with EPA’s recent decision to exempt an additional 31 refineries from their obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
The EPA has now reduced RFS requirements by 4.04 billion gallons through retroactive refinery exemptions.
Texas Corn Producers needs your help to protect the RFS from EPA actions that jeopardize the president’s commitment to support America’s farmers and renewable fuels.
Stand up and join your fellow corn growers to:
- Contact President Trump: Ask him to see through his commitment to farmers and stop the refinery waivers from EPA.
- Send comments to EPA: Request they account for the billions of lost gallons from the refinery exemptions, as they determine the proposed RFS volume rule.
The deadline for comments on EPA’s proposed volume rule is this Friday, August 30.
