  • The EPA has sent its proposed Renewable Fuels Standard Volume Obligation Rule to a White House office for review.

    The EPA sent the proposal to the White House Office of Management and Budget, which could take up to 90 days to review. Several groups responded, including the National Biodiesel Board, stating the board was “pleased to see the process moving forward and hope the final rule will show that this Administration is standing behind our national goals for clean, domestic fuels that strengthen our economy and national security.”

    The content has yet to be made public and the timeline for releasing it remains unclear.

  • The World Trade Organization has sided with Canada and Mexico in regards to U.S. Country of Origin Labeling rules.

    Canada and Mexico have asked for the World Trade Organization’s help against new U.S. COOL rules, which they say are more restrictive and harmful to beef cattle and pigs imported into the U.S. than an earlier version of the legislation that was found to violate WTO rules.

    In July, the WTO decision was provided to the governments, but will not be made public until it’s translated which could be weeks or months.
