Legislation Benefits Biofuels

Sens. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) and Tim Johnson (D-SD) introduced the “Renewable Fuels for Energy Security Act of 2001” bill.

Under the measure, renewable fuels would account for 3% of highway transportation fuels by 2011 and 5% by 2016. It will allow flexible approaches to comply with program goals in ways that best fit within the operations of fuel providers.
