Congresswoman Hinson Visits Western Dubuque Biodiesel in Farley

Congresswoman Ashley Hinson is calling for a biodiesel tax credit extension.

Hinson was in Farley on Tuesday afternoon to tour Western Dubuque Biodiesel. She says recent fuel supply challenges and rising gas prices show the need to increase the use of biofuels as a reliable and clean energy source – and she says the conversations she had at the Farley plant confirm that Iowa’s biofuel industry stands ready to meet this need.

Hinson has already co-led legislation to extend the biodiesel tax credit and to codify waivers that will allow the sale of higher ethanol-blended fuels – and she says she will continue calling for policies that provide certainty for Iowa’s biofuel producers and farmers.
