On Friday, the Environmental Protection Agency issued its ruling on the request to waive the Renewable Fuels Standard denying the request made by several state governors and livestock organizations.

The request was for a one year waiver to assist the livestock industry with high feed prices due to the Midwestern drought this past summer.  While the denial came as no surprise, and was considered a long shot under the best of circumstances, livestock groups and organizations were disappointed.  North Carolina’s governor Beverly Perdue signed the request to the EPA along with six other governors whose state economies are heavily invested in the livestock industry. US Senator Kay Hagan says she is disappointed by the EPA's decision.
