Grocery Manufacturers Association Applauds Bipartisan Biofuels Proposal in U.S. House

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) today issued the following statement from GMA President and CEO Pamela G. Bailey regarding the Affordable Food and Fuel for America Act (H.R. 3187), co-sponsored by the Honorable Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and the Honorable Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) of the U.S. House of Representatives:

“GMA strongly supports the production of sustainable biofuels. I applaud Congressman Crowley and Congresswoman Bono Mack, along with their fellow cosponsors, for crafting this good, bipartisan, sensible and responsible piece of legislation. By gradually shifting subsidies away from conventional biofuels toward second and third generation biofuels, the Affordable Food and Fuel for America Act will help accelerate the development of advanced fuels that simultaneously help to address our food, energy and climate security needs.”
