Biofuel waivers being discussed with White House before EPA makes decision

February 15, 2020 |

In Washington, D.C., Reuters reports that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is looking to the White House for guidance on the biofuel waiver program’s future after a court ruling cast doubt over its legitimacy. The EPA aims to announce a decision by early next month, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Friday.

According to Reuters, “The EPA will announce a response to the court’s decision by March 9 after consultations with the White House, according to the source, who asked not to be named.”

“EPA and (the Department of Justice) are reviewing the decision and carefully considering its potential impact on the program,” EPA spokeswoman Molly Block said in a statement to Reuters.
