IOWA SENATOR CHUCK GRASSLEY VOWS TO WORK WITH HIS COLLEAGUES TO ADDRESS RESTORING THE YEAR-ROUND SALE OF THE 15-PERCENT ETHANOL FUEL BLEND,

HE SAYS “FIGHTING BIG OIL IS NOT AN EASY JOB.”

LAST FRIDAY, THE U.S. COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT REVERSED THE RULE ENACTED BY THE E-P-A THAT ALLOWED E-15 TO BE SOLD BETWEEN JUNE AND SEPTEMBER, A MOVE ENCOURAGED BY THEN-PRESIDENT TRUMP.

THE DECISION TO ALLOW E-15 TO BE SOLD YEAR-ROUND PUT THAT BLEND ON A PAR WITH THE POPULAR 10-PERCENT ETHANOL BLEND WHICH HAS BEEN AVAILABLE FOR SALE ALL YEAR FOR DECADES.

GRASSLEY SAYS HE’LL PUSH FOR A LEGISLATIVE SOLUTION TO THE ISSUE TO GIVE SOME CERTAINTY TO FARMERS AND PRODUCERS AS HE SAYS THE COURT RULING IS A “BIG HIT” TO ETHANOL.
