VoteVets Reacts to Release of New Renewable Fuel Obligations Under the Renewable Fuel Standard

WASHINGTON – Today, the veterans group reacted to the release of the Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), by the Obama administration.  In a statement, retired Major General Paul D. Eaton, senior advisor to VoteVets said: 

“Biofuels are an extremely important component of an energy future where America gets off fossil fuels.  Our dependence on oil drives up demand and prices, benefitting hostile regimes, whether we buy oil directly from them, or not.  Getting off oil is a matter of national security.  We continue to watch for signals from the White House and EPA that they will do all they can do to support a strong Renewable Fuel Standard, that gets America off oil, and makes us more secure.”
