Ag Secretary Gives RFS Progress Update

Speaking with reporters this week in Washington, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue provided an update on what is being done to resolve issues surrounding the Renewable Fuels Standard.

“We’re working feverishly to resolve the RFS issue,” said Perdue, who added that he has been working with EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler on a proposal to present to President Trump, who is “very, very anxious to get this resolved.”

“I think we can resolve it to the satisfaction of both our ethanol industry as well as our refinery industry,” Perdue said confidently.
