So even Pennsylvania’s GOP Senator is complaining about corporate welfare in his constituent e-letter: “I had the chance to meet with President Trump this week to voice my concerns about how the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which forces American motorists to use corn-based ethanol, is jeopardizing thousands of jobs at Pennsylvania’s refineries.
“The RFS forces refineries to buy unaffordable “Renewable Identification Number (RIN)” credits. RINs have no intrinsic value; they serve only as a compliance mechanism for the Renewable Fuel Standard.
“Ideally, we would abolish the obsolete, counterproductive RFS regime altogether as it is a blatant, corporate welfare program for the ethanol industry. Failing that, we must, at least, reform this system to provide needed relief for refineries in Pennsylvania.
“I appreciate the President’s constructive leadership to fix the broken RINs system and am hopeful a solution that works for all interested parties can be found.”
