Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Rep. Kevin Cramer received their awards Tuesday and Growth Energy will present Sen. John Hoeven with his award at a later date, likely in North Dakota.

"Biofuels are such a valuable renewable resource, which could help lead us toward North American energy independence -- all while supporting well-paying jobs in rural communities," Heitkamp said in a statement.
