Ethanol Coalition Vice President Concerned About RFS Proposal

Ethanol Coalition Vice President Concerned About RFS Proposal

 

A bi partisan group of Senators led by Iowa’s Chuck Grassley met with EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy this week to talk about the proposed reduction in the Renewable Fuel Standard.  Grassley says the proposal is a step backward that will harm efforts to further diversify America’s fuel supply. American Coalition for Ethanol Senior Vice President Ron Lamberty of Sioux Falls says while he agrees with the Senator, he isn’t sure anything good will come out of that meeting.

Lamberty says people need to submit comments on the EPA proposal and have until January 28 to do that.

Lamberty agrees with Grassley who says the blend wall is a result of the Oil industry’s obstruction to higher ethanol blends and the EPA proposal is rewarding that obstruction.
