Sens. Grassley and Ernst submit Next Generation Fuels Act to the Senate

July 27, 2022 |

In Washington, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) introduced the bipartisan and bicameral Next Generation Fuels Act, a proposal that aims to leverage higher-octane fuels to improve engine efficiency and performance. Allowing the sale of fuels with greater octane levels would increase the amount of ethanol that can be utilized in the fuel supply, in turn lowering prices at the pump for consumers.

Joining Grassley and Ernst in introducing the Next Generation Fuels Act were Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.). Similar legislation has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) and is cosponsored by all members of the Iowa congressional delegation, including Reps. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), Randy Feenstra (R-Iowa), Ashley Hinson (R-Iowa) and Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa).
