WASHINGTON, D.C. — Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) President David Holt, released the following statement after a Capitol Hill press conference that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz held today as workers rallied for their jobs and Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) reform:

“Consumer Energy Alliance believes that it is time for Congress to take up legislation that will provide comprehensive reforms to the RFS program. The systemic problems that we see with the RFS arise out of faulty assumptions that Congress made when they expanded the program in 2007.  With the benefit of time, Congress now has a clearer understanding of the flaws in the program, and it is time for Congress to reform and fix the RFS.”
