On Tuesday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on the Environment convened a hearing on the 21st Century Transportation Fuels Act, a discussion draft led by U.S. Reps. John Shimkus, R-Ill., and Bill Flores, R-Texas, to reshape federal transportation fuel policies.
Notably, the hearing discussed the future of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program.
“Since the RFS was first established in 2005 and expanded in 2007, much has changed in the market for transportation fuels. If federal policies are not routinely evaluated and updated to reflect market conditions, consumers end up having less than optimal choices,” said Flores.
