Legislation that would repeal Florida's renewable fuel standard is "a really bad, poorly conceived, reprehensible bill that does nothing but put politics and oil industry interests in front of state job creation and clean energy economic development," writes Bradley Krohn, president of United States EnviroFuels. The bill has been approved by the state Legislature but should be vetoed by Gov. Rick Scott, he writes. "In Florida, there are at least six commercial advanced ethanol plant projects in development or in construction that will generate thousands of new jobs and represent nearly $1 billion in investment," Krohn writes.
