The House Energy and Commerce Committee should also scrutinize the environmental impact of fossil fuels if it wants to see the full effect of the Renewable Fuel Standard on our surroundings, according to Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association. In response to the committee's queries about the RFS, Dinneen sent back 10 questions of his own about the threats fossil fuels pose to the environment. "As Congress assesses the merits of ethanol and the RFS, a clear understanding of the fossil fuels being displaced by ethanol and other renewable fuels is imperative," he said.
