08 Jul Renew Kansas Biofuels Association Endorses Congressman Roger Marshall for Senate
Renew Kansas Biofuels Association is endorsing Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., for the United States Senate. Marshall, co-chairman of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus, has shown steadfast support of renewable fuels since his election to the United States House of Representatives in 2016.
“Dr. Marshall has continually shown his ability to be a leader and positive voice for biofuels in Washington, D.C.,” said Lyle Schlyer, Renew Kansas Chairman and President of Pratt Energy LLC. “It is crucial the biofuels industry, and all of agribusiness, support a trusted ally to step into Sen. Pat Roberts’ seat.”
We had a great day in Northwest Kansas discussing energy – in all its many forms. From oil, natural gas and electricity to renewable energy and ethanol, Kansas is leading the charge in energy independence. pic.twitter.com/ThttPqr9U0

Most recently, Marshall introduced the Clean Fuels Deployment Act of 2020, a bill providing grant funding for installing and converting fuel pump infrastructure to deliver higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel in Kansas. The legislation would authorize $600 million over six years for the Department of Transportation to provide grants that will incentivize the deployment of fueling infrastructure for ethanol and biodiesel, with a focus on ethanol blends greater than 10 percent and biodiesel blends greater than 20 percent.
“Since Day One, no member of Congress has fought harder for the Kansas biofuels industry than Dr. Roger Marshall,” Renew Kansas President and CEO Ron Seeber said. “Not only is Roger Marshall the best choice for U.S. Senate, he is the only choice.”
