ACE Applauds House Effort to Ensure Uninterrupted Market Access for Clean, Low-Cost E15
Posted on 06/16/2022
The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) today applauded efforts by U.S. Representatives Angie Craig (D-MN), Cindy Axne (D-Iowa) and other House members to advance legislation that would permanently extend Reid vapor pressure (RVP) limit relief to blends of gasoline containing “more than” 10 percent ethanol, which would ensure uninterrupted market access to E15 in all parts of the country. The House passed the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act (H.R. 7606) today, which includes the Year-Round Fuel Choice Act, as well as the Renewable Fuel Infrastructure Investment and Market Expansion Act to provide more biofuels infrastructure funding. ACE CEO Brian Jennings issued the following statement in support of the efforts that resulted in these important ethanol provisions being taken up in the House:
“ACE thanks Representatives Angie Craig, Cindy Axne and others for their tremendous leadership to secure market access for E15 beyond this summer’s driving season and increase availability of higher ethanol blends. Ensuring uninterrupted access to E15 is not only an urgent priority for our industry, but the best way to make an immediate positive difference at the pump and in reducing tailpipe emissions.”
Last week, ACE issued a call to action urging members to contact their representatives to support the legislation so consumers can benefit from year-round access to low-cost E15 in all parts of the country.
