Iowa leads coalition of 8 Attorneys General asking EPA to implement year-round E15

January 30, 2023 |

In Iowa, Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird led a bipartisan coalition of seven Attorneys General urging the Biden Administration to follow the law and respond to the request of Governor Kim Reynolds and seven other Governors that the EPA issue regulations allowing the sale of year-round E15 ethanol gasoline in their States.  

Federal law permits Governors to request that the EPA issue the regulations allowing E15 and requires the EPA to issue the regulations within 90 days. Governor Reynolds led a bipartisan coalition of Governors making the request on April 22, 2022, but the EPA still has not issued the regulation as required by law. Earlier this month, Governor Reynolds, again wrote to the Biden Administration reiterating her request that the mandatory regulations be issued in response to their request.  

Attorney General Bird and the Attorneys General of Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin wrote to EPA Administrator Michael Regan and Director of Office of Management and Budget Shalanda Young supporting their governors and urging the Biden Administration to comply with the law and issue the regulations allowing E15 this summer.
