Washington State University testified in support of legislation that would continue the Sustainable Aviation Biofuels Workgroup during today’s Senate Energy, Environment & Technology Committee.

The workgroup was previously established in 2012 to further develop the sustainable aviation fuel industry by facilitating communication among aviation biofuel stakeholders, but the group expired in July of last year. Senate Bill 6563 would reestablish the group through December 2023.

Michael Wolcott, Director for the Office of Clean Technology at WSU, spoke on behalf of the University to issue support for bringing back this workgroup. Video of his testimony can be viewed below.
