The RFS Power Coalition today applauded H.J. Res. 31, the spending bill passed by both the House and the Senate. The committee report of the Interior-EPA portion of the spending package includes a provision that “strongly encourages” the EPA to process within 90 days the backlog of applications that electricity producers have submitted to the agency to participate in the Renewable Fuel Standard.
