AEA Calls for Full RFS Repeal Ahead of This Week’s White House Meeting

WASHINGTON – Today, the American Energy Alliance launched a multi-state digital ad initiative urging Washington to repeal the failed Renewable Fuel Standard as special interests seek more handouts within this broken and outdated big government policy.

“For more than a decade – as our nation’s energy outlook has positively transformed thanks to free market competition and private sector ingenuity, not government’s heavy hand – American consumers, family farmers, and refiners have suffered under this economically destructive policy,” said AEA president Thomas Pyle.

As the White House holds yet another meeting this week with lawmakers over so-called RFS “fixes,” AEA urges the Trump administration and Congress to swiftly and fully repeal this harmful mandate.

“Only in Washington are additional special interest carveouts considered ‘fixes’ or ‘solutions,’” added Pyle. “Enough is enough. It’s time for Washington to finally repeal the RFS, get government out of the business of picking winners and losers, and let the free market power our energy economy forward.”

The six-figure initiative encourages voters to let Washington know that the broken RFS continues to harm American farmers, consumers, and businesses to the benefit of certain special interests. The ad will run across ten states (Delaware, Iowa, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Wyoming) and Washington, D.C.

Full text of the ad:

The Renewable Fuel Standard was supposed to help American farmers and make our country energy independent. But after ten years, consumers, family farmers, and American refiners are stuck with the bill.

Now, special interests in Washington are fighting for handouts that will make things worse.

Enough is enough.

Tell Washington to repeal the RFS. We need real reform, not more special interest handouts.
