 I am disappointed the Senate is still unable to extend the biodiesel tax credit more than eight months after it expired. Extending the biodiesel tax credit is a common sense step that would advance our goal of energy independence and provide a boost to rural economies. Washington’s inability to extend this tax credit has been devastating to the biodiesel industry, costing thousands of jobs and countless hours of production. Unfortunately, rather than encouraging investment in renewable fuels, today’s vote only provides more uncertainty to our farmers and biodiesel producers.
