US House amendment would block DOD from non-petroleum fuel purchases

July 25, 2013 |

In Washington, while the House’s energy committee was hearing testimony regarding the Renewable Fuels Standard, an amendment to the defense spending bill was approved by voice vote that would block the DOD from purchasing most biofuels, going so far as to include any “non-petroleum” fuel. Politico says it doesn’t expect the measure to pass the Senate or conference committee. An amendment was also approved prohibiting federal agencies from purchasing fuels with higher GHG emissions than fossil fuels.
