I will be communicating with EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and President Trump on this issue.” In a joint October letter sent to the EPA from Noem and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Noem said that the agency’s proposed rules “demonstrate that EPA is oblivious to the harm it has caused.” In the past three years, the EPA has issued 85 small refinery waivers, representing a loss of over 4.3 billion gallons of biofuels. “While this rule needs more work, I’m grateful to the administration for fighting for American farmers and ranchers. I am glad to see the EPA building off our win to permit year-round sales of E-15 in their work to develop an infrastructure program. Increased ethanol production is absolutely critical for South Dakota producers as recent years have seen lower commodity prices and unstable market conditions,” Noem concluded. Noem currently serves as vice chair of the Governors’ Biofuels Coalition. Formerly serving as co-chair of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus, Noem has been a leading ethanol advocate. She has met on numerous occasions with President Trump and top administration officials on the topic.
