Grassley Challenges Biden Administration on Biofuels

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) gave a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday challenging the Biden Administration’s support of biofuels in general and ethanol in particular.

“Reuters reported the Biden Administration is considering ways to allow U.S. oil refiners to not meet their biofuels blending requirements,” said Grassley. “The same administration has proposed hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies for electric vehicles but failed to include any support for biofuels infrastructure.”

Sen. Grassley noted that President Biden promised in his campaign to promote and advance renewable energy, ethanol and other biofuels to help rural America and our nation’s farmers. “President Biden is not keeping that promise.”
