POET PAC: More than a contribution



...it’s an investment in the future of biofuels.




The fight continues for the biofuels industry in Washington and around the country. Our old adversary, Big Oil, is not just playing to win; it is also trying to decimate agriculture as we know it. We can’t and won’t back down.


With America’s farmers facing plummeting commodity prices, incomes and land values, there has never been a more important time to reinforce rural America’s role in producing clean, renewable energy. The only way to avoid the pending ag crisis is to come together and let Washington know we need a larger share of the fuel market.


Rural America has a powerful voice when we decide to use it. This is why we need you – those who have supported and worked with this industry – to make an investment so that we can boldly spread the truth about the benefits of biofuels and crush the lies pushed forward by Big Oil.


How can you invest in the future of biofuels? By joining POET PAC today.


 


DO PAC DOLLARS WORK?


YOU BET THEY DO.


We have been able to grow political support for renewable fuels and push back on many attempts to kill the 5 billion bushels of corn we draw on as an industry.


Here are a few of our recent successes:


Shut down the attempt by New York billionaire Carl Icahn to change the Renewable Fuel Standard’s (RFS) Point of Obligation, which would have derailed our efforts to engage fuel retailers and bring mid-level biofuel blends to consumers.


Equipped industry and political champions to fight against proposed changes to the RFS that would have otherwise limited or even stopped any roll out of E15.


Maintained 15 billion gallons of starch-based biofuels and increased the amount of cellulosic biofuel from the Environmental Protection Agency’s original proposal in 2017.


Thirty-eight senators supported us and a strong 2018 Renewable Volume Obligation.
