WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor applauded today’s bipartisan passage by the Ohio House of Representatives of House Bill 165, which expands consumer access to cleaner, more affordable options at the fuel pump. Sponsored by Riordan T. McClain (R-87), the bill would offer qualifying retailers a tax credit of $0.05 per gallon on sales of ethanol blends beyond the standard 10 percent (E10), including popular options like E15 and E85. Growth Energy submitted testimony in support of the bill this March.

“This important bill will give more drivers a chance to take advantage of homegrown, plant-based fuel options that unlock savings at the pump while reducing emissions,” said Skor. “Ohio ethanol producers and farmers are playing a critical role in decarbonizing the transportation sector, and we applaud Representative McClain and his colleagues for taking action to make higher blends more readily available. Sold statewide, E15 could boost Ohio’s economy by $650 million and slash greenhouse emissions by 746,000 metric tons – equal to removing 163,000 vehicles from Ohio roads. This is the kind of progress we need to help family farmers, boost our rural economies, and meet our climate goals. We urge leaders in the Ohio Senate to move quickly and send H.B. 165 to the governor’s desk.”
