Your Help is Needed!

There has been growing discussion among legislators to remove the Renewable Fuels Standards. Members of Congress have suggested that the federal biofuels standard included in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 is causing adverse economic impacts or is responsible for rising food costs around the globe.

We now this not to be true and we need to make sure that our elected representatives in Washington here from us. Representative Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D-SD) and Representative John Shimkus (R-IL) have written a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency asking them to deny the request from Texas waiving the RFS. If the EPA were to grant this request, it could have serious repercussions here in Wisconsin.

We need to contact our legislators and ask them to co-sign the Herseth Sandlin-Shimkus letter in support of the Renewable Fuels Standard. You can call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your representative’s office.  Just tell your representative you want them to sign the Herseth Sandlin-Shimkus letter. Remember, every voice helps!
