Sierra Club files notice of intent to sue EPA for failing to report on RFS

February 27, 2017 |

In Washington, the Sierra Club filed a notice of intent to sue the Environmental Protection Agency for failure to conduct triennial reports to congress on environmental and conservation impacts of the renewable fuel standard and failure to conduct anti-backsliding analysis or determine if mitigation measures are necessary as required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

“Under the triennial reporting mandate, EPA was required to complete a second report no later than December 19, 2013. To date, EPA has not issued the second report or a third report, which was required no later than December 19, 2016. Although EPA indicated that its failure to complete subsequent reports was the result of resource reductions, it has made no requests to Congress for subsequent report funding, nor has it communicated with Congress regarding the reporting requirement,” the Sierra Club said.
