LINCOLN, NEB. – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, joined her colleagues in calling on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to modernize its rulemaking for biogenic carbon emissions. Read the full letter from Senator Fischer and her colleagues to the EPA here.

“The EPA needs to recognize that biogenic carbon emissions from ag feedstocks are not the same as carbon emissions from fossil fuels. Doing so will spur agribusiness investment in renewable fuels. A more modern rulemaking on this issue is critical for rural America,” said Senator Fischer.

Senator Fischer has been a leader on ensuring regulatory certainty on biogenic carbon emissions for agriculture. Last November, Senator Fischer led a bipartisan group of her colleagues in calling on the EPA to provide clarity on biogenic carbon emissions.
