AMI Supports Bill to Rescind E15 Waivers

Monday, March 4, 2013

(American Meat Institute)

AMI joined a broad group of 36 organizations in supporting legislation introduced by Senators Roger Wicker (R-MS) and David Vitter (R-LA) that would overturn Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) waivers that allowed gasoline containing 15 percent ethanol (E15) to be used for many passenger cars and light trucks. S. 344 would also prohibit the EPA Administrator from granting any waiver for a blend above 10 percent ethanol.  On February 21, AMI and other groups appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court a D.C. Circuit Court decision rejecting a challenge to EPA's grant of partial waivers for use of E15.  Click here to view the letter supporting S. 344.
