WASHINGTON, DC – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked 20 members of the House Biofuels Caucus, led by Co-Chairs Collin Peterson (D-MN), Rodney Davis (R-IL), Dave Loebsack (D-IA), and Roger Marshall (R-KS), who sent a bipartisan letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler in support of the year-round sales of E15. The lawmakers called on EPA to finish lifting outdated restrictions on the biofuel blend in time for this year’s summer driving season.

“We are grateful for the continued support of champions on both sides of the aisle who are fighting for a strong rule that will ensure more biofuels reach consumers at the pump,” said Skor. “The rural economy is at a breaking point, and it’s vital that EPA act by June 1 to uphold the president’s commitment to farm families and allow retailers to keep more homegrown fuel on the market this summer.”

Signers of the letter are: Reps. Collin Peterson (MN-07), Rodney Davis (IL-13), Dave Loebsack (IA-02), Roger Marshall (KS-01), Darin LaHood (IL-18), Steve King (IA-04), Cheri Bustos (IL-17), Mark Pocan (WI-02), Adrian Smith (NE-03), Don Bacon (NE-02), Dusty Johnson (SD-At Large), Cindy Axne (IA-03), Angie Craig (MN-02), Steve Watkins (KS-02), James Comer (KY-01), Abby Finkenauer (IA-01), Jeff Fortenberry (NE-01), Tom Emmer (MN-06), Pete Stauber (MN-08), and Sam Graves (MN-06).

"We showed Washington that ethanol is not only essential, but an unsung hero in the effort to eradicate the virus. No other industry is in the same position to revitalize rural America.”
