ICYMI: Senior White House aide defends biofuels mandate

On Thursday afternoon The Hill hosted a Capitol Hill forum on the future of biofuels.

Top White House energy aide Heather Zichal told the audience that calls to repeal the renewable fuel standard are “short-sighted.”

And officials with companies that make “advanced” biofuels spoke about what the future holds. Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) addressed the event as well.
