Sen. Barrasso calls for EPA studies on environmental impact of Renewable Fuel Standard

The leader of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee called on the EPA on Friday to conduct “overdue” studies on the impact that the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) has had on air, water, and land quality.

In a letter to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, U.S. Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate EPW Committee, noted that EPA is required to assess the environmental impacts of the RFS under the Clean Air Act and the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA).
