On Wednesday, former Sec. of State and presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, met with Democrats to discuss her candidacy and issues important to Iowa. Included in a private meeting in Marshalltown were ARF co-chair Patty Judge and Iowa Corn Growers board member, Bruce Rohwer.
“We had the opportunity to talk about issues facing Iowa—renewable fuels being one of them,” said Judge, “Sec. Clinton was extremely receptive and I feel encouraged by her comments about the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).”
Clinton supported the RFS during her initial run for president and in 2007 called for aggressive investment in renewables. “I was able to thank Sec. Clinton for her past support of the RFS and I am confident future conversations will be just as positive,” said Rohwer.
