July 23, 2015

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) -  During RFD-TV's RURAL TOWN HALL, 2016 presidential candidate Gov.Bobby Jindal addressed a variety of issues important to rural Americans. The audience included Monte Shaw of America’s Renewable Future and Iowa’s Renewable Fuels Association who wanted to know the Louisiana governor's views on keeping the Renewable Fuel Standard in place through 2022.  

Gov. Jindal responded by stating that he supports the renewable fuels standard, but he would like to see the industry stand on its own. He went on to state that he supports the gradual phase out of the RFS and above all would like to see a “level playing field for everybody” in the energy industry. “When I was in Congress, "he said. "I voted for the RFS and I support the production of ethanol to diversify our fuel sources. I think all those fuels are important part of our energy security and for growing our economy.”
