WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement regarding the Senate Agriculture Committee’s confirmation hearing for President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Agriculture, former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.
“The role played by the Secretary of Agriculture is of critical importance to the biofuels industry and rural America. We look forward to hearing Governor Perdue’s perspective on how to move American agriculture forward.
“President Trump’s vocal support of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and ethanol gives us confidence that his cabinet nominees understand his commitment, and we are eager to hear more from Governor Perdue about the role biofuels, including ethanol, can play in addressing the challenges and opportunities facing our nation’s agricultural industry. Should he be confirmed, we will look forward to working with him to protect the economic wellbeing of American farmers, all while providing consumers access to higher performing, American-made biofuels.”
