RFA Disappointed Court Won’t Hear LCFS Case

The United States Supreme Court this week decided not to hear a challenge to California’s low carbon fuel standard law. The ethanol industry is expressing disappointment and dismay at the decision. Renewable Fuel Association’s Geoff Cooper says the decision has ramifications that the industry won’t see for a couple of years.
Cooper says it’s also disappointing the High Court didn’t take into account the 21 states that supported the challenge to the California standard. He says there’s no doubt the LCFS is a violation of the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Cooper says over the next several years California officials will be forced to change or adjust the rule.
Cooper says the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the case will have implications for all products, not just ethanol going forward.
