Tuesday was the deadline for comments on EPA’s RFS volume requirement proposal for 2014.  Under the agency proposal the volumes of ethanol blended into gasoline was reduced from the original RFS mandate of 14.4 billion gallons.  Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller says based upon his interpretation of the law, EPA does not have the authority to drop those volume requirements.

Miller says EPA is misinterpreting the Renewable Fuel Standard law.

He says he hasn’t decided what action his office will take if EPA reviews the comments and stays with their proposal.

Miller spoke this week at the Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit held in Altoona.
