Womack Statement on EPA's RFS Waiver Decision
Congressman Steve Womack released the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) delayed decision to deny a Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) waiver.
“In August, I sent a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson with 155 of my House colleagues asking for immediate relief from the government’s ethanol production mandate. On Friday, the EPA denied that request, citing a lack of “severe economic harm” to justify such a decision, despite evidence to the contrary. When an agency fails to act, Congress must, and while disappointing, this decision made clear the need for Congress to reevaluate the Renewable Fuels Standard.”
