National Association of Wheat Growers submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the proposed 2014 Renewable Volume Obligation for the Renewable Fuels Standard.

The comments stress that changes to the standards would send the wrong market signals, impacting agricultural markets and investments in new technology and cellulosic biofuels production. The association supports the standards as passed by Congress and opposes EPA’s proposed 2014 renewable volume obligation under the standards.

House and Senate leaders also expressed concern about the EPA proposal in letters sent to EPA recently.

The standards have reduced greenhouse gas emissions, increased production of domestic renewable energy and energy security, and encouraged economic development and new technology.

The EPA is accepting comments on the proposal until Tuesday. You can submit comments at or use this website:
