Biofuels-Global Warming story

Iowa lawmakers are taking a stand in the debate over renewable fuels and how much should be produced this year.  On Thursday, they extended Iowa's biodiesel incentive through 2017.  That means the state's two cent per-gallon refund on biodiesel production will stay in place for three more years.  The action comes as the federal government plans to scale back its mandate for ethanol by three billion gallons starting this year.
