White House set to host followup meeting Monday on biofuels -sources
NEW YORK, March 8 (Reuters) - The White House has
preliminary plans to host on Monday the latest in a string of
meetings between rivals in the corn and oil industries to
discuss how to help refiners cope with the rising costs of
complying with the nation's renewable fuel laws, two sources
familiar with the planning told Reuters.
Unlike previous meetings, President Donald Trump will not be
in attendance, but key lawmakers, agency leaders and executives
from the oil and corn industry will be, the sources said.
A White House official did not immediately comment.
