On Monday, April 9, from 7 – 10 AM Central Daylight Time (CDT) several agriculture and ethanol groups will be participating in a Twitter Townhall, prior to the scheduled meeting happening at the White House regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Yesterday, NCGA sent out a Grassroots call to action, asking members to send a letter or call President Trump and their appropriate member of Congress. This social media effort provides another opportunity for your voice to be heard.
You can participate in the Twitter Townhall, by using the #RFSWorks. Some sample Tweets you can use are:
President @realDonaldTrump - Keep your promise to farmers - support the RFS. Don't give in to Big Oil. #RFSWorks
President @realDonaldTrump - Don't undermine the RFS. Let farmers and rural America know you still have their best interests in mind. Farmers can't afford the EPA destroying corn and ethanol demand. #RFSWorks
@EPAScottPruitt - When will you stop being in Big Oil's back pocket? Do what's right for the environment, consumers and American farmers. #RFSWorks
