On Oct. 9, presidential candidate Mitt Romney unveiled a white paper on his positions and plans to support Agriculture. Once again, Romney clearly announced his support of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Bob Dinneen, President and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), issued the following statement:
"We applaud Governor Romney's continuing support of domestic renewable fuels and his recognition of the importance of the RFS. Right here, right now the ethanol industry is working hard and to great effect to reduce America's reliance on imported oil, create hundreds of thousands of jobs all across rural America, and lower gas prices at the pump. We also appreciate Governor Romney’s business acumen when it comes to the importance of certainty to investors in the next generation of biofuels."
