Trump Advisers Urge Him to Leave Biofuel Reforms to Congress

On Thursday, President Donald Trump’s advisers have urged him to let Congress take the lead in efforts to lower the cost of the nation’s biofuels policy for refining companies.

The recommendation emphasizes the difficulties the White House has faced in attempting to modify the Renewable Fuel Standard.

The RFS is an old law intended to help farmers and reduce fuel imports that has for years divided the corn and oil industries.

Two sources said Trump had agreed to leave the issue up to Congress and to use executive action only if lawmakers fail to make progress.
