E15 & Biden

I’m Bob Larson. A huge sigh of relief last week from the corn ethanol industry and its backers in Congress …

GRASSLEY … “The Biden Administration is considering allowing summertime sale of E15—praise the Lord.”

Iowa U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley …

GRASSLEY … “When you start filling up at the gas tank, E15 is clearly, the cheaper option. The president needs to act soon, before this lower-cost option is halted by EPA.”

The courts upheld the Biden EPA’s nixing of a Trump-era rule that allowed summertime E15 sales, but ethanol supporters argue EPA should use a more accurate model to measure summertime E15 emissions …

GRASSLEY … “I joined in a bipartisan effort with Senator Klobuchar and Thune, just last week, in pushing EPA to use this model, which shows that ethanol has more than a 40 percent reduction in lifecycle carbon emissions, than conventional gasoline does."

Top House Ag Republican GT Thompson says it will help ease soaring gas prices …

THOMPSON … “How can it be that supply constraints caused by Putin are bad, but the supply constraints caused by President Biden and Vice President Harris Administration are harmless?”

Grassley says President Biden could issue an executive order to lift restrictions on summertime E15 sales.
