Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley joined senators from other biofuels producing states yesterday (Tuesday) to meet with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is President-elect Donald Trump’s Secretary of the Department of Energy nominee. Grassley said he was looking for assurances that Perry appreciates the role of biofuels in energy strategies to meet the country’s needs and is confident that he will carry out the direction of the incoming president. Perry joins Scott Pruitt, EPA administrator nominee, as the second nominee to express the sentiment that the executive branch will follow the rule of law and stay the course on biofuels. The Department of Energy conducts research on fuel optimization that is relevant to biofuels policy-making.
