WASHINGTON, D.C.— Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement after Kansas Governor Laura Kelly (D) sent a letter to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan requesting the agency allow the sale of E15 products this coming summer through the use of an emergency waiver.
“Momentum for the emergency waiver continues to build, and we hope EPA does what it must to allow E15 to be sold this coming summer. With this letter, Gov. Kelly joins the esteemed company of other midwestern leaders who have taken action on behalf of their constituents to ensure that they have continued access to E15—a fuel option that’s less expensive, better for the environment, better for American energy security, and approved for use in 96 percent of cars on the road today. We welcome Gov. Kelly’s support and hope EPA acts quickly to ensure that this lower-carbon fuel doesn’t disappear from retail stations on June 1.”
