  • Friday, 30 October 2015 00:00

Earlier this week, we gave you the various positions the GOP presidential candidates have on ethanol and the RFS. Today, we take a look at the Democratic presidential candidates.


Sec. Hillary Clinton

"We have to get the RFS back on track in a way that provides investors with the certainty they need, protects consumers, improves access to E15, E85 and biodiesel blends, and effectively drives the development of cellulosic and other advanced biofuels."

Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Iowa is one of the leaders in the country in wind and biofuels. So, I support the Renewable Fuel Standard, I think we got to put more emphasis on cellulosic ethanol, which is a more efficient form of biofuel than we currently have."

Gov. Martin O'Malley

"We should keep these standards always moving up. When you do things like reversing or lowering standards, it sends tremors through the marketplace and sends word to investors that this is an unstable future."
