ACE Thanks EPA for Delivering on E15 Executive Action
Posted on 04/29/2022
Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it is issuing a national, temporary emergency waiver so E15 can continue to be sold this summer, which will help increase fuel supplies, give consumers more choice to get lower prices, and provide savings to many families. American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) CEO Brian Jennings issued the statement below following the announcement:
“ACE thanks Administrator Michael Regan for making good on President Biden’s promise to American consumers, the ethanol industry, and farmers by issuing a national emergency waiver for E15 this summer starting May 1.
“While we are grateful EPA intends to issue new waivers effectively covering the 2022 summer season, a permanent remedy to expand consumer access for E15 long term is still necessary. That’s why we encourage Administrator Regan to respond to the formal request by the bipartisan group of governors to allow year-round E15 access in their states, and work with Congress on a legislative fix.”
