press play to hear from IRE Mgr. Alan Yoder

The manager of a local bio-diesel plant is happy about recently introduced renewable fuel standards, but wants lawmakers to also be making headway on what’s call the “blenders” tax credit. Alan Yoder is with Iowa Renewable Energy in Washington. Yoder says RSF2 will be a major boost for operations like IRE, but he says it’s not “like a light switch” that can be turned on and off. He says the tax credits are necessary to put people back to work in the immediate future.
