Congressmen introduce Fuels Parity Act to consider corn ethanol an advanced biofuel

May 15, 2023 |

In Washington, U.S. Representatives Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-01), Stephanie Bice (OK-05), Wesley Hunt (TX-13), Eric Sorensen (IL-17), and Nikki Budzinski (IL-13) have introduced the Fuels Parity Act, legislation that would allow ethanol from corn starch to qualify as an advanced biofuel and require EPA to use the Argonne GREET model to determine the greenhouse gas emission profile of biofuels under the RFS.

“As we look toward a cleaner energy future, it’s imperative we take an ‘any-of-the-above’ approach to energy production. Removing legal barriers that limit the use of corn-based ethanol will bolster American energy production and support our agriculture industry—all while lowering carbon emissions,” said Miller-Meeks. “I’m proud to lead this bipartisan legislation and honored to be joined by my colleagues from Texas, Oklahoma, and Illinois.”
