Secretary Vilsack made the following statement on passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014:

"Today's action will allow the proud men and women who feed millions around the world to invest confidently in the future. Our communities will have additional support to attract new economic opportunity and create jobs. During difficult times, children, working families, seniors and people with disabilities will have access to nutritious food. The potential of new products, treatments and discoveries will be strengthened through new agricultural research. Renewed conservation efforts will protect our fields, forests and waters creating new tourism options. This legislation is important to the entire nation.

Building on the historic economic gains in rural America over the past 5 years, this bill will accomplish those goals while achieving meaningful reform and billions of dollars in savings for the taxpayer. While no legislation is perfect, this bill is a strong investment in American agriculture and supports the continued global leadership of our farmers and ranchers."

NAEDA has submitted comments to EPA concerning their proposal to reduce the 2014 biofuel blending requirement under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). In the comments, it was noted that reducing the required levels of biofuels will have an impact on farmers, their income and equipment dealers and their employees.

The comments noted that “Reducing the required levels of biofuels will also have an effect on job creation, reduce our nation’s energy security and cut future investments in the development of next generation biofuels.
