Each state in the United States has enacted statutes regarding laws relative to the role of agriculture in the nation’s energy equation. These statutes vary from tax incentives for biofuel production, the labeling of biofuels for resale, and even the very definition of a biofuel. This compilation of state statutory citations is in the process of being updated to focus predominantly on biofuels laws in effect from January 1, 1970 through December 31, 2013. In some instances, regulations have been included in the compilation due to their significance. This compilation is intended to serve as a researcher-friendly inventory of state laws by providing the formal title of relevant legislation, the standard legal citation for each statute and a brief description of the law. Some statutes and regulation listed do not specifically relate to biofuels but are included because of their complementary relationship to the evolution of biofuels law in the state. To view a state’s statutory citations, simply click on the state’s image in the map below.

To review a compilation of citations for federal biofuel laws in effect January 1, 1970 through December 31, 2013, see the companion publication Federal Biofuel Statutory Citations.
