STATEMENT: Koster Responds to Brunner and Republicans Opposing the Renewable Fuel Standard
St. Louis, MO – Today, Attorney General Chris Koster released the following statement in response to John Brunner’s newly stated opposition to the renewable fuel standard:
“John Brunner and the rest of the Republicans who oppose the renewable fuel standard have clearly lost touch with Missouri’s agricultural community. Missouri farmers are leaders in developing and producing renewable biofuels that benefit our economy and our environment. Rolling back these standards would only serve to undercut their hard work and put the economies of our rural communities at risk.
“As Attorney General, I have always stood up for Missouri’s agricultural industry and our corn and soybean growers. I will continue fighting to expand the possibilities of where and how our farmers bring their goods to market here and around the globe.”
