Congressman Dave Lobesack will be visiting West Burlington today.
His first stop of the day is to Big River Resources at 1pm to kickoff his “Fueling Iowa’s Economy” Tour.
His tour will highlight the importance of homegrown renewable fuels and biodiesel, as well as wind energy. Recently the EPA announced a proposal to lower renewable fuel volume obligations under the Renewable Fuels Standard for 2014. This could have a devastating consequence in Iowa, according to a press release from Lobesack.
