Legislative Actions: Federal

The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has been involved in shaping public policy related to the increased production and use of domestically produced ethanol since 1981. The RFA serves as a vital link between the industry and the federal government, including the U.S. Congress, the Administration, and regulatory agencies.
