Ag group calls for "Twitter townhall" to preserve RFS

Ethanol (MGN)

Ethanol backers are making an online push Monday to preserve the renewable fuel standard.

The National Corn Growers Association said it’s holding a “Twitter Townhall” from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m., asking people to use the hashtag #RFSWorks.

The group wants messages tweeted to President Trump and EPA chief Scott Pruitt, even providing sample tweets.

“Let farmers and rural America know you still have their best interests in mind. Farmers can’t afford the EPA destroying corn and ethanol demand,” said one example.

NCGA, along with other farm groups, do not want the RFS lowered.
