Rep. Sensenbrenner Introduces New Bill Blocking E15

Rep. Sensenbrenner (joined by Broun, Griffin, Hall, Smith, Westmoreland) introduced HR 875, to overturn the E15 waivers until the completion of a comprehensive National Academy of Sciences study on mid-level ethanol blends. 

This is the second bill regarding E15 introduced in so many weeks. HR 875 follows closely after U.S. Senators Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and David Vitter (R-La.) on February 14, introduced legislation to block an increase in the amount of ethanol that can be blended with gasoline and would overturn Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) waivers that allowed gasoline containing 15 percent ethanol.
