NCBA Wants True Renewable Fuels Policy Reform



(NAFB)--National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Executive Director of Government Affairs Kristina Butts said this week that the Environmental Protection Agency took a step in the right direction when it proposed to reduce the Renewable Fuel Standard targets for 2014. But she noted it’s up to Congress to affect further change to renewable fuels policy. According to Butts - EPA’s proposed changes show there is flexibility within the RFS on the statutory side. However - she said the changes don’t go far enough. Butts says true reform is needed and NCBA is going to work with members from both sides of the aisle and both chambers of Congress to bring reform forward. The group supports legislation in the House and Senate that would reform or entirely repeal the RFS. Butts made it clear that NCBA is not opposed to ethanol. She said the problem is with a government policy that picks one industry over another.
