NATSO Statement on Moving RFS Compliance Obligation Downstream

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

NATSO issued the following statement Feb. 27 along with SIGMA after learning that President Trump may issue an executive order shifting the RFS compliance obligation downstream.

"This backroom deal would severely undermine the Renewable Fuel Standard and force everyday Americans to shoulder the burdens of higher fuel costs and more expensive goods. A majority of the fuel industry, including most refiners and large sectors of transport as well as renewable fuel producers, are united to keep the compliance requirements where they are today. Making this change would only benefit a handful of companies at the expense of average, hardworking Americans."
