WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is already looking at the possibility it will need to reset biofuels use targets in 2017 and beyond, an official said at a Senate hearing on the U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program on Thursday.

"Our highest priority is getting the 2014, 2015, and 2016 volumes out. That doesn't mean we don't already have our staff looking at the possibility of resetting volumes," EPA Acting Assistant Administrator Janet McCabe said at the hearing.
