WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor today thanked a group of 18 bipartisan senators for standing up for consumer choice at the fuel pump by calling on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt to deliver on the president’s promise to allow 15 percent ethanol blends (E15) to be sold year-round.
In their letter, the senators asked for a timeline of the rulemaking process to allow higher ethanol blends access to the market place. They also asked the Administration to allow year-round sales of E15 this summer.
“The president understands that lifting outdated government regulations restricting the year-round sale of E15 is the right path forward, and given the explosion of small refinery waivers by EPA, year-round sales should not require any refinery-driven trade-off,” Skor said.
“We continue to be grateful to our champions in Congress for pushing the EPA to make good on the president’s commitment to year-round E15 sales. Lifting these barriers will create a new market for surplus crops, while strengthening our energy security and delivering a jolt to the rural economy.”
