"Nebraskans can’t ignore the law, and neither should Washington."

U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse issued the following statement today regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) unilateral rewrite of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volume requirements.

"Nebraskans can’t ignore the law, and neither should Washington. Reasonable people can argue about the RFS and the appropriate place to do that is Congress. Our state’s farmers never had an opportunity to vote for or against any of these bureaucrats but that’s not stopping the EPA from acting like a super-legislature. I am incredibly disappointed that, over and against concerns my letter voiced this spring, one of Washington’s most powerful agencies is again unilaterally re-writing the law."
