Finkenauer Calling For EPA Investigation

Iowa Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer has joined other lawmakers asking for an investigation into renewable fuel standard program waivers. President Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency has issued 31 new small refinery exemption waivers. Those waivers exclude small refineries from having to meet renewable fuel guidelines. Finkenauer says giving out too many waivers has a negative impact on farmers in Iowa. She is calling for an investigation to look into how the EPA and the Department of Energy are awarding the waivers. Between 2013 and 2015 the EPA granted 8 waivers a year. Finkenauer hopes an investigation will ensure appropriate insight going forward.
