JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Governor Greitens is announcing the release of new funds for Missouri's Biodiesel program on Thursday at the Carnahan Memorial Garden in Jefferson City.

According to the release, the state will be releasing the $4 million restriction on Biodiesel for Missouri Biodiesel producers and $65,000 for the Office of the Military Advocate.

"We're proud to fight for Missouri's often-forgotten rural communities and farmers," said Governor Eric Greitens. "These long-promised funds will help farmers and workers in rural communities across the state."

Missouri produces nearly 200 million gallons of Biodiesel in eight production facilities and since 2007, Biodiesel has supported almost 2,500 jobs in the state, according to the release.
