The Trump administration plans to appeal a federal court decision that called into question a program exempting small oil refineries from the nation’s biofuel blending laws, three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

The move comes after a major push from senators representing oil states, who said the program was essential for keeping refineries -- and the jobs they provide -- afloat.

The administration had previously aimed to respond to the court decision by scaling back the waiver program.

Farm and biofuel industry groups sent a statement on Thursday urging Trump not to appeal the decision.
