Florida Closes Door on Biofuels Jobs

first_imgHome Energy Florida Closes Door on Biofuels Jobs Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Friday, the Governor of Florida signed into law HB4001, a bill which repeals the state Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS).  In a joint statement, Bob Dinneen, President and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association and Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, commented what this law really means for the state of Florida:“As this country struggles to comeback from recent economic hardships, it is sad to watch a state legislate away good paying jobs in the renewable energy sector and the abundant economic opportunities that come along with them.  This bill isn’t worth the paper it is printed on given that that the federal Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) supersedes any state law.  This toothless legislation might win favor with Big Oil supporters, but it has closed the door on job creation by the biofuels industry and sent investors packing for more visionary states.  This is most definitely a lost opportunity for people of Florida.” About Growth EnergyGrowth Energy represents the producers and supporters of ethanol who feed the world and fuel America in ways that achieve energy independence, improve economic well-being and create a healthier environment for all Americans now.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has also sought replies from the Union of India and the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi. The order has come in a PIL filed by Mr Vikram Gahlaut challenging the validity of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act as being ultra vires of the Constitution. The Petitioner had also sought for the removal of Zafarul Islam Khan from the position of the Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act. In the previous order dated 21/05/20, the court had directed the Delhi Government to conclude the process under Section 4(4)(f) of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act against Zafarul Islam Khan in accordance with law in two weeks. The Division Bench of Justice Manmohan and Justice Sanjeev Narula had further issued fresh notices to the Delhi Minorities Commission, the Delhi Government, and Mr Zafarul Islam Khan himself. Today, the Petitioner informed the court that despite the previous order of this court, no decision has been taken by the Delhi Government on the prayers moved in the petition. Replying to this submission, the Delhi Government informed the court that the reply has been received from Zafarul Islam Khan and now the file is pending before the Law Ministry. Delhi Government further informed the court that the concerned Ministry is currently understaffed due to the COVID19 measures, and hence more time would be required to file the reply. The court will now take up the matter on August 31. Next Storylast_img read more
