Growth Energy fly-in seeks to protect the RFS and fix the RVP

September 12, 2017 |

In Washington, Growth Energy is holding its annual advocacy conference in Washington, D.C., this week, bringing together over 150 leaders in the ethanol industry from across the country to champion the association’s policy priorities on Capitol Hill.

During Growth Energy’s Biofuels Summit, advocates will meet with members of Congress to urge support for protecting the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and for securing a legislative fix for the Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) restriction that places barriers on consumer fuel choice during the summer.

Growth Energy advocates will ask members of Congress to cosponsor the Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act (S. 517, H.R. 1311), which would correct an outdated regulation that restricts retailers from selling fuel containing 15 percent ethanol (E15) during the summer fueling season (June 1 through September 15).
