Iowa RFA happy with Fuel Choice and Deregulation Act to extend E15 approval

March 30, 2015 |

In Iowa, the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) applauded Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for introducing S.889, the Fuel Choice and Deregulation Act, that would extend the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 1 psi Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) volatility waiver to E15, just as the Agency has done for E10, allowing E15 to be sold to 2001 and newer vehicles in Iowa year-round.

“We applaud this effort by Sens. Paul and Grassley to remove unnecessary hurdles in federal regulation, and allow consumers to have year-round access to lower-cost E15, the most tested fuel in history,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “While other elected officials just this week sent letters hoping to restrict consumer choice and pander to petroleum’s near monopoly over the transportation fuel sector, it’s refreshing to see these valiant Senators get serious about building upon the progress we’ve made in air quality and encouraging competition at the pump.”
