Talks on bio­fu­els con­tinue

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - LOCAL BUSINESS DIRECTORY -

The White House says talks will con­tinue on a dis­pute over the fu­ture of the re­new­able fuel stan­dard, which has pit­ted law­mak­ers from corn-pro­duc­ing states against those rep­re­sent­ing re­finer­ies.

White House spokes­woman Sarah Huck­abee San­ders said Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump had a pro­duc­tive meet­ing Tues­day with four Repub­li­can se­na­tors: Ted Cruz of Texas, Pat Toomey of Penn­syl­va­nia and Charles Grass­ley and Joni Ernst of Iowa.

The White House said Trump has made clear his com­mit­ment to the RFS and sup­port for farm­ers and en­ergy work­ers.

The stan­dard re­quires bio­fu­els from corn and soy­beans to be blended into gaso­line and diesel. Mid­west states have sought to main­tain the stan­dards while oil com­pa­nies have pushed to ease the man­dates.
