California and Washington Governors Call on EPA to Set Advanced Biofuels Levels

Washington Governor Jay Inslee and California Governor Jerry Brown recently sent a letter to White House Office and Management Director Shaun Donovan and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy urging them to set "strong required" volumetric obligations in the final RFS2 rule "for biomass-based diesel and advanced and cellulosic biofuels, and to refrain from adopting new methodologies that would curb investment in low carbon renewable fuels."

The governors also urged the White House and EPA “that required volumes increase steadily, not just for 2014, but through 2022 and beyond, as envisioned in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.”
