'The renewable fuels industry is part of the lifeblood of the 4th Congressional District, and I am honored to have received the 'Fueling Growth' award for my ongoing work in support of biofuels,' said King. 'We have had important victories for ethanol this year, including the President's decision to direct the creation of a rule allowing the year-round sale of E15. This is something I personally asked him to do, and I am grateful to President Trump for opening the calendar to increased summer sales of ethanol.

King has established himself as the leading proponent of Renewable Fuels in Congress, and his strong record on renewable fuels includes several recent, important actions:
