Senate Energy Committee Passes Biodiesel Amendment

Apr. 30, 2003

The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources approves an amendment concerning biodiesel during markup of the Energy Bill. The amendment, introduced by Sen. Jim Talent, R-Mo., will eliminate the 50 percent cap on alternative fuel credits earned by fleets that must use alternative fuels.

"This amendment provides a cost-effective option for those who are subject to Department of Energy regulations," Talent says. "Renewable fuels such as biodiesel will assist our producers, increase our energy independence, create American jobs, and they are good for the environment."

The Energy Policy Act (EPACT) requires federal, state and public utility fleets to acquire a percentage of alternative fuel vehicles or to use biodiesel in at least a 20 percent blend in existing diesel vehicles. However, biodiesel credits have been capped at 50 percent.

"We're grateful to Senator Talent for recognizing that biodiesel would have been unfairly treated, and for introducing this amendment to remedy the problem," says Joe Jobe, executive director of the National Biodiesel Board, Jefferson City, Mo.
