WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, today released a statement in response to the EPA’s final Renewable Fuel Standards for 2017:


Today’s announcement from the EPA once again demonstrates how broken the RFS is,” Inhofe said. “Though EPA has acknowledged the realities of the blendwall, increasing mandated corn-ethanol volumes is not the appropriate response. Continuing to mandate more ethanol into the fuel supply comes at the expense of Oklahoma’s refiners and consumers. It is essential we repeal or reform the RFS in the coming Congress.”




On May 18, Inhofe released a statement commenting on the proposed  renewable volume obligations (RVO) pursuant to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)


On Nov. 30, 2015, Inhofe released a statement regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final rule for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volume requirements for 2014, 2015, and 2016
