Hearing in the Heartland Supporting the Renewable Fuels Standard


Iowa Governor Branstad will host a Hearing in the Heartland: Supporting the Renewable Fuels Standard at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 23. The hearing will be held at the Hall of Laureates, 100 Locust Street, Des Moines, Iowa.

Governor Branstad and his staff have done an excellent job elevating the Midwest’s concern over the impact that the EPA’s proposed renewable fuel targets will have on millions of Americans who benefit from the Renewable Fuels Standard. The Des Moines hearing on January 23rd is their latest effort to provide a convenient forum in the Midwest for those who could not attend EPA’s only hearing in Washington last month.

Your governor, you, and the general public are invited to participate in the hearing either in person or with written comments.

Please RSVP to Julie Vande Hoef, Policy Advisor for the Governor, at by 9 AM on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. Your response should contain the following information:

Full Name

Organization Being Represented (If applicable)

Day of Event Phone Number

Email Address

Statement whether the individual would be interested providing verbal testimony as time allows.


Thanks for all your help expressing our disappointment with the EPA’s proposed RFS targets.


Larry Pearce

Executive Director
