From Growth Energy:

This morning the Senate Banking Committee defeated by an amendment offered by Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) to reform the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). After the amendment failed, Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy issued the following statement:

“It is no surprise that Senator Toomey’s amendment failed – it never had a chance of passing. Similar to legislation he has introduced before, it did not gain any traction and failed because this legislation only restricts consumer choice and attempts to dismantle a successful American industry that is creating jobs, improving our environment and reducing our dependence on foreign oil. The simple fact is that the RFS has bipartisan support and it has been the most successful energy legislation this nation has enacted in over 40 years.”
