Recently, the United States Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver ruled that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) "abused its discretion" by approving small refinery exemptions (SREs) under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Over the past three years, exemptions have destroyed demand for billions of gallons of biofuel. The court determined that EPA is not permitted to grant new exemptions – only extend existing exemptions -- and that exemptions may be granted only where compliance with the RFS is the sole cause of disproportionate economic hardship.
Following years of abuse and lost markets, the 10th Circuit made it crystal clear in their ruling -- EPA was not following the law as laid out in RFS. EPA should now correct this wrongdoing by applying the decision nationwide.
If the EPA opts to fight the court’s decision, the deadline to file an appeal is March 24, so the clock is ticking.
Join us TODAY in asking your leaders in Congress to demand EPA stand with rural America and follow the law by applying the 10th Circuit's ruling nationwide.
