ACE Applauds Midwest Governors for Working to Ensure Retailers Can Sell E15 Year-Round

The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) applauded the bipartisan group of Midwestern governors today for their letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan, officially requesting from EPA their state authority to ensure retailers can continue to sell E15 all year long without interruption. ACE CEO Brian Jennings issued the following statement thanking the Midwest governors:

“ACE thanks this bipartisan group of Midwest governors for their leadership to ensure E15 can be sold year-round to help bring down prices at the pump while simultaneously reducing tailpipe emissions. E15 is a low-cost, clean fuel blend and losing access to this growing clean fuel market will only harm everyone through even higher pump prices and greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions.

“ACE stands by these Governors as they pursue all options to ensure E15, a clean and safe fuel with lower RVP emissions than E10 and straight gasoline, can be sold year-round for years to come.”

Governors Kim Reynolds (R-Iowa), Pete Ricketts (R-Nebraska), Tim Walz (D-Minnesota), Tony Evers (D-Wisconsin), Doug Burgum (R-North Dakota), Kristi Noem (R-South Dakota), Laura Kelly (D-Kansas), and JB Pritzker (R-Illinois) signed the letter.
