MISSOULA -

A new report shows renewable fuels now represent 10% of America's fuel supply, and Montana workers are reaping the benefits. An economic impact study by the economic research firm, John Dunham and Associates, shows far-reaching benefits for Montana workers and businesses.

It said renewable fuels now drive more than $480 million of economic output. They also support more than 2,000 jobs and $98 million in wages.

The findings come as the oil industry urges lawmakers to reduce the use of renewable fuel, so it doesn't impact the oil industry
