The governors of Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota, on behalf of the Governors’ Biofuels Coalition, sent a letter to President-Elect Trump, thanking him for his support of biofuels and the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) during the campaign and saying they are looking “forward to a robust and healthy relationship between your administration, America’s farm families and our nation’s renewable fuels industry.”

RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen had the following statement:

“We thank Governors Pete Ricketts (Nebraska), Terry Branstad (Iowa) and Dennis Daugaard (South Dakota) for reaching out to President-Elect Trump to thank him for his support for biofuels and the RFS, and highlighting our industry’s economic impact that has rippled throughout the nation. The President-Elect understands the importance of clean, domestic energy resources and the economic power of value-added agriculture. We are confident he will continue to support the RFS and expanded production and use of fuel ethanol during his administration.”
