A bipartisan group of farm-state senators has asked the EPA to stop issuing waivers that allow oil refiners to forego the biofuels mandate. The senators said the recent rash of waivers undermines the Renewable Fuel Standard. This effort is being led by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley. The other lawmakers signing off on this letter include South Dakota Senator John Thune, Minnesota Senator Tina Smith and North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp.
