Many renewable energy advocacy groups are prepared to work with the Obama Administration and the new Congress to continue advancing U.S. energy policy. Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen says both President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney publicly supported the Renewable Fuels Standard and agreed energy independence was an important national goal. Dinneen says ethanol supporting 400-thousand American jobs and reducing U.S. oil imports from the Persian Gulf by 25-percent for the past 12-years is just the beginning of what biofuels can accomplish.
Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says he appreciates the support of the President and his Administration over the past four years – and the renewable fuels industry is looking forward to working with them and Congress in a bipartisan manner to help expand market access for biofuels. Now that the election is over – Senate Ag Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow says Americans could not be more clear they want Congress to work together to create jobs and reduce the deficit. When thinking about the farm bill – Stabenow says if Congress can work together – it will create the trust and momentum necessary to overcome gridlock and solve the challenges the nation faces.
