(RFA) — President-elect Joe Biden nominated Tom Vilsack to lead the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The following is a statement from Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) President and CEO Geoff Cooper.
“Tom Vilsack is an excellent choice to serve in this role. During his last term as secretary, he has shown clearly and continually that he can work effectively with the broad spectrum of interests who have a stake in the wide body of issues under USDA’s portfolio, including renewable fuels. We are especially happy to have someone in the Biden administration who intimately understands the crucial role renewable fuels and agriculture can play in confronting climate change. We thank the president-elect and look forward to working once again with the new secretary once he takes office.”
