Take Action: EPA Slashes 2014 RFS Requirements

The National Corn Growers Association is asking its members, friends in the agriculture community and the general public to tell the EPA that they oppose EPA's proposed rule to slash the amount of ethanol in 2014.

For 2014, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a 1.4 billion gallon reduction in how much corn ethanol will be required under the Renewable Fuel Standard, the federal law that helps get domestic, renewable, cleaner-burning corn ethanol blended in the nation’s fuel supply. This will reduce already-low corn prices and negatively affect planting decisions in 2014.

We need your help today. The EPA is accepting comments on the proposal until 11:59 p.m. EST January 28, 2014. Please use the links below to send a response and tell the EPA it needs to maintain the RFS for corn ethanol at 14.4 billion gallons. Your comment will be public and discoverable on the Internet. Please click on one of the links below and take five minutes to send a brief response directly to the EPA.
