ACE Members Take Action in Support of E15

As the June 1, 2024, summer driving season approached, ACE rallied advocates to call on the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and urge the Biden Administration to take emergency steps to allow E15 nationwide during the 2024 summer driving season. ACE members also pushed EPA to take this action during its March DC fly-in. Members of Congress joined the call, urging President Biden to expeditiously grant the series of emergency waivers that would lift restrictions on the sale of E15 in the summer of 2024.

The Biden administration has rightfully exercised emergency authority to enable nationwide access to E15 for three summer driving seasons, but ultimately Congress must adopt the bipartisan Nationwide Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act (S. 2707) to ensure continuous access to E15 nationwide. ACE is encouraging advocates to now call on their members of Congress to foster support for this bill at
