WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the recent announcement that the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear the challenge to the Ninth Circuit’s decision on the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard, the Renewable Fuels Association and Growth Energy issued the following statement:
“We are extremely disappointed that the Supreme Court has declined to review the Ninth Circuit’s decision, despite the broad support for the petition — including 21 states. We will continue our efforts to protect the American biofuel industry and the national interest and will continue to ensure that all consumers have access to low-priced, American-made biofuels.”
