Agenda RFS Strattegy Meeting Dec 12


“Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice Through the Looking Glass


Just a reminder that we’re meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 12, at the Hall of the States, Room 231, 444 North Capitol Street, NW. The latest discussion agenda is attached. You comments and suggestions for the agenda are always welcome. Please contact David or me if you have questions or additions. And please let us know if you would like a conference line made available.

As mentioned in our earlier invitation, compared to our opponents, we have limited financial resources but vast political and constituent resources that must be organized, coordinated and directed with a unified message over the next couple of months. That message must be focused and unrelenting if we are to have any hope of persuading the White House to modify the proposed RFS rules and to adopt a plan to grow the nation’s biofuels industry rather than place limits on our future. Rick Tolman and his colleagues at the National Corn Growers Association have already made excellent progress in this area.

We must, in fact, “…run at least twice as fast” if we are to open new market opportunities for this industry, which is so vital to the future of our states’ economies, and linked to the growth path that Congress and we envisioned when the expanded RFS was adopted.

See you next Thursday.
