NBB Calls on Members to Speak Up for RFS

first_imgIn a letter to members this week, National Biodiesel Board CEO Joe Jobe called on NBB members to stand up in defense of the Renewable Fuels Standard in response to calls by petroleum groups for its repeal.“The oil industry is pulling out all the stops to get the RFS repealed. While we do not expect a repeal vote in the near term, efforts to undermine or severely weaken the program could gain momentum at any moment, and we don’t know where that could lead given the unpredictable nature of Congress,” Jobe wrote.Jobe also called on NBB members to visit the group’s Fueling Action advocacy site, from which visitors can send a letter to the Obama Administration calling for a 2014 volume increase.“This is not a drill,” Jobe added. “The RFS is under attack, and we have to raise the volume of our advocacy to defend it.”last_img
