Senator Amy Klobuchar is again co-sponsoring bipartisan legislation that would make E-15 fuel available year-round. The Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act of 2023 would allow sales of ethanol blends higher than ten percent in the summer months:
“But the reason we don’t have year-round E-15 right now is because the DC court of appeals threw out a rule making that had been done by the previous administration.”
Sales of the 15-percent ethanol blend are usually prohibited between June and mid-September – but the E-P-A issued an emergency waiver last summer due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Minnesota Congresswoman Angie Craig is sponsoring a companion bill in the U-S House.
