Growth Energy Applauds 10th Circuit Ruling to Vacate Three Improperly Granted SREs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Growth Energy welcomed news that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit granted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) request to vacate three last-minute small refinery exemptions (SRE) granted by the Trump Administration on January 19, 2021. EPA moved to vacate the SREs on Friday, April 30. In response, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor made the following comment:

“We are glad to see the court move swiftly and agree with EPA’s motion to vacate and remand Sinclair’s improperly granted SREs. Going forward, SCOTUS should affirm the 10th Circuit’s opinion and affirm EPA’s authority to deny this and all other improper SREs outright, once and for all.”
