Iowa governor’s budget includes $3M for renewables infrastructure

By The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association | January 15, 2019

Gov. Kim Reynolds released her 2019 Iowa budget proposal Jan. 15. Included in her budget was $3 million for the Iowa Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program, which provides cost-share grants to help Iowa retailers incorporate blender pumps, storage tanks and other necessary equipment to offer higher blends of biofuels.

“IRFA members want to thank Gov. Reynolds for prioritizing funding for blender pumps through Iowa’s Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program in her budget,” said Monty Shaw, executive director of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association. “RFIP was identified in the Iowa Energy Plan as one of the best ways to help Iowa become No. 1 in both the production and use of homegrown energy like ethanol and biodiesel. Gov. Reynolds continues to play a key role in pressing the Trump administration to keep its commitments to renewable fuels, and she continues to lead here in Iowa as well.”
