Twin bills in Senate and House seek to bring back year-round E15 after Supreme Court ruling

July 14, 2021 |

In Washington, U.S. Senators Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), members of the Senate Agriculture Committee, released the following statement after reintroducing the Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act. The bill would extend the Reid vapor pressure (RVP) volatility waiver to ethanol blends above 10 percent. It would increase market access and continue to allow retailers across the country to sell E15 and other higher-ethanol fuel blends year-round, eliminating confusion at the pump. Higher blends of ethanol burn cleaner, providing a way for more Americans to be part of the climate solution.

Cosponsors of the bill include Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), John Thune (R-S.D.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), Roger Marshall (R-Kansas), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), and Tina Smith (D-Minn.)

Sister legislation, the Year-Round Fuel Choice Act, was presented to the house by Rep. Cindy Axne (IA-03) and her fellow co-chairs of the House Biofuels Caucus.
