WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement applauding today’s vote in the Indiana Senate to uphold Governor Eric Holcomb’s veto of SEA 303, which would have required superfluous, confusing labels.
“We are pleased with the Indiana Senate’s support for the governor’s decision to stand with ethanol producers and farmers across Indiana. Today, fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol (E15) is offered at more than 2,500 retail locations across 31 states, including 81 in Indiana, and is approved for 96% of cars on the road. All E15 fuel dispensers also carry a federal label indicating it is a 15 percent ethanol fuel blend. With oil prices surging amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we continue to support efforts to protect Hoosiers’ access to lower-cost biofuels .”
