After nearly a year-long lapse, the biodiesel tax incentive was reinstated in the year-end "fiscal cliff" legislation passed by Congress on Jan. 1, 2013, and signed by President Obama. This decision is expcected to stimulate several hundred million gallons of additional biodiesel production this year, supporting thousands of additional jobs across the country.
As we start to look toward next steps for the future, we want to make sure we thank all of our supporters in Washington who helped push the incentive over the finish line. If you worked with a member of Congress who supported the incentive, please take the time to make a quick phone call, write a letter, or send an email thanking them for their support.
We must continue to remind our elected officials know that this incentive is paying huge dividends in terms of jobs and economic development, energy security, and cleaner air and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
