NFU Pleased with Announcement of Increased Funding for Biofuels
Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change Heather Zichal announced Monday the availability of up to 30-million dollars in funding for commercial scale advanced drop-in biofuels through the Defense Production Act and Energy Department. National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says the initiative is great for rural America because it helps create more jobs and keeps more money in the U.S. - rather than overseas. Johnson says it also makes sense to utilize home-grown fuel rather than relying on foreign oil - and increased use of biofuels helps moderate fuel costs.
