RFS Waiver No Guarantee of Relief
In Monday’s Newsline, Andrew Walmsley, an AFBF energy specialist, explains why the nation’s Renewable Fuels Standard should not be put on hold.
“We’re somewhat concerned about a potential knee-jerk reaction that has long-term implications for a policy that has had a lot of rural development and has decreased our dependence on foreign oil,” Walmsley said. “Obviously the drought has had a major impact on all sectors of agriculture across the country. However, waiving the RFS won’t necessarily have the relief that some folks imagine it will.”
