Iowa Attorney General urges U.S. Supreme Court to support RFS

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller is leading an effort to support the Renewable Fuel Standard before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Miller and seven other state Attorneys General have submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court urging the court to uphold a recent 10th Circuit Court decision concerning the RFS. The bipartisan brief supports the 10th Circuit’s finding that EPA abused the RFS refiner exemption process in recent years. Refining companies appealed that decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Monte Shaw is Executive Director of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association. He thanked Miller for his leadership in organizing the effort during a press conference on Wednesday.

In January of 2020, the 10th Circuit Court found that EPA illegally issued RFS exemptions to refineries that did not qualify. The verdict of the case is now being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court.
