DOE and USDA Send Letter to Senate Energy Chairman

Schafer and Bodeman urge careful consideration and answer questions about biofuels.

Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer and Secretary of Energy Sam Bodman sent a letter to Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., on Wednesday asking him to carefully consider food and fuel pricing issues and cautioning him against hasty judgments driven by highly questionable, agenda-driven calculations, some of which have been featured prominently in the popular press.

Also enclosed in the letter were responses to a number of questions Bingaman had concerning food and fuel issues. To view both the letter and the answers to Bingaman's questions, click HERE.
