EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler told reporters Wednesday the agency had not yet made a decision on 2021 Renewable Volume Obligations or on small refiner waiver requests, Reuters reports . “The COVID response has had a negative impact on both corn growers as well as refiners, and we’re trying to understand what the market is going to be and what we should expect for next year as far as the RVO is concerned,” Wheeler said, according to Reuters. POLITICO has reported that the Trump administration appears set to postpone the politically fraught decisions until after the November election in order to avoid backlash from the feuding agriculture and petroleum sectors.
