ASHFORD STATEMENT REGARDING RENEWABLE FUEL STANDARDS

WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 27, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Rep. Brad Ashford (NE-02) issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to carve-out nine billion gallons of ethanol from the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program, in 2015 and 2016:

“I will continue to work with members of both parties to fight any attempt by the EPA that would slash the Renewable Fuel Standard program. These severe cuts would seriously harm Nebraska’s growing economy, along with harming the environment and damaging national security,” said Ashford. “As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I am well aware of the strategic importance of reducing our dependence on foreign oil. Home-grown fuel doubles as an economic engine and a defender of freedom.”
