The renewable fuels and agriculture community along with its leaders released a public letter to allies outlining a united stand with America’s Renewable Future (ARF) to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) in the 2016 election. ARF released a report card grading the presidential field recently, which is endorsed by the undersigned organizations.
The letter urges Iowa voters to turn to ARF to know where candidates stand on the RFS and designates the organization as the definitive voice on the issue. This letter comes as Sen. Ted Cruz has recently attempted to confuse Iowa voters on his position on renewable fuels and the RFS. ARF will continue letting Iowans know that despite his change in tone Cruz is still anti-RFS and will destroy Iowa’s agricultural economy and Iowa farmers.
The letter is signed by the following leaders:
Tom Buis, CEO – Growth Energy
Bob Hemesath, President – Iowa Corn Growers Association
Tom Brooks, President – Iowa Renewable Fuels Association
Jeff Broin, CEO – POET Biorefining
Bob Dineen, President & CEO – Renewable Fuels Association
Wayne Fredricks, President – Iowa Soybean Association
Joe Hrdlicka, Executive Director – Iowa Biotech Association
Grant Kimberly, Executive Director – Iowa Biodiesel Board
Will Rogers, Director of Government Affairs – Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers
Bruce Rastetter, CEO – Summit Agricultural Group
Brian Jennings, Executive Vice President – American Coalition for Ethanol
