Growth Energy Cheers Bipartisan Call for EPA Action on Midwest E15

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Growth Energy praised a letter from 31 House and Senate lawmakers to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for long-overdue action on a petition from Midwest governors that would preserve access to lower-cost E15 prior to the start of the summer driving season.

“Our governors, our attorneys general, and our leaders in Washington have all made it clear to EPA that failure is not an option,” said Emily Skor, Growth Energy CEO. “We’re grateful to our bipartisan champions in Congress for calling upon EPA to act swiftly to protect cleaner, more affordable fuel options at the pump for working families. American drivers saved an average of 16 cents per gallon this past summer thanks to E15, and no one wants to see those options vanish from the marketplace on June 1.”
