first_img White House Adviser Working on Biofuel Mandate Plan SHARE By NAFB News Service – Dec 7, 2019 Previous articleBurnin’ the Bean- Happenings in DC and Elsewhere in Ag This WeekNext articleImpeachment Trumps all the Clamoring for USMCA NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow is working on improving the Trump administration’s plan for bolstering biofuel requirements.Bloomberg says the move comes after ethanol boosters in politically important farm states said the current proposal doesn’t compensate for waivers that exempt some small refineries from the mandates under the Renewable Fuels Standard.Biofuel producers, corn farmers, and Midwest political leaders blasted the Environmental Protection Agency’s current approach to biofuels as inadequate. They say the EPA mandates completely ignored the terms of an agreement reached on October 1st to raise biofuel blending requirements enough to fully offset refinery exemptions.Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) says the EPA could have the best of intentions but “farmers don’t believe it” because of the agency’s track record.Oil industry leaders say the EPA’s current proposal is illegal, arguing that it would unfairly force the larger refineries to bear a higher burden of biofuel-blending requirements. EPA is currently reviewing public comments as it prepares a final rule that will set the 2020 biofuel quotas.Kudlow’s work could lead to changes in the final rule that would ensure the final measure is more in line with what Trump gave approved in negotiations that led to the October 1st agreement.

Is there anything better than unlimited pizza for teenage boys? Unfortunately, that plan came to a screeching halt when we entered the restaurant.About five feet into the establishment, we were “greeted” by a man behind a counter in a logo T-shirt who said, “We close in 20 minutes.” The buffet still had pizza on it, so I asked him if they would be adding to it before closing. He said, “we might consider a special request.”We turned around and left, which is what your customers or members (or potential ones) would do if someone at your financial institution greeted them with such blatant rudeness. It was their loss and your gain, because here’s what you can learn from Pizza Inn’s poor service. continue reading » 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
