Midwest Mayors Press Wheeler to Reject RFS Waiver Requests

“A group of 70 mayors from towns and cities across ethanol-production country have asked EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to reject requests by states and others to waive the Renewable Fuel Standard requirements because of COVID-19, in a letter sent to the agency on Monday.

The mayors from South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Missouri, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas and Colorado, said the closure of local ethanol plants has hurt their rural economies.”
