No, really all I was saying is 1% sounded very reasonable. I didn't talk politics other than to ask what the no votes were based on and BG gave an answer. I think you and tdown are wanting to argue. I just want to understand, be realistic and express my pleasure that there wasn't a 5% increase

Ok, your income is increasing but not your employees. Then its your employees that may want to reconsider their career choice. All I was trying to say is anyone would desire to have their income increase and must everyones income does increase by more than 1% a year, that's just a fact unless you aren't a dedicated worker or you're a deadbeat, or in jail etc.

When you ask the question, "How could anyone complain?" (and also "1%?"), you are definitely arguing on behalf of the contract that was approved. Those rose-colored glasses that you wear when it comes to City politics aren't all that becoming. Is your last name Grussenmeyer? Reis? Goehl? Holtschlag? I am sure you are in the family tree somewhere....

Cellulosic and advanced biofuels producers are very concerned that the EPA proposal to lower 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) targets will have a chilling effect on investment in the next generation of renewable fuels.

 

The uncertainty created by the proposal has already caused Abengoa Bioenergy to wait and see what happens before they commit to any further investment, according to Executive Vice President, Institutional Affairs Chris Standlee

Standlee :35

 

Iogen Corporation president and CEO Brian Foody says they would like to expand technology for cellulosic ethanol using sugarcane bagasse in Brazil to the United States as long as the RFS provides the incentive for investment.

Foody :51

 

Delayne Johnson, General Manager of the farmer-owned Quad County Corn Processors ethanol plant which broke ground in July on a bolt-on cellulosic ethanol technology, said that changing the RFS at this point is "going to create uncertainty" for other plants looking at adopting that technology.

Johnson :28

 

Advanced Ethanol Council Executive Director Brooke Coleman says lowering the volume requirements under the RFS creates a shrinking market for biofuels.

Coleman :33

 

The comment period on the EPA proposal for 2014 volume obligations ends January 28, but Renewable Fuels Association president and CEO Bob Dinneen expects it will be some time before a final decision is made and he believes it will be changed to avoid any legal challenge from the industry.
