Grassley points to Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act after SCOTUS denies year-round E15 petition
A U.S. Senator suggests with one door closing on year-round E15, Congress must act to open another.
Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley says he’s disappointed the Supreme Court decided not to take up Growth Energy’s petition to allow year-round E15 sales.
“So this brings me to a bipartisan bill, the Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act. This bill would allow fuel retailers across the country to see E15 and other high blend fuels 12 months a year.”
Nebraska Republican Deb Fischer and Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar introduced that bill in response to a D.C. Circuit Court ruling blocking the sale of E15.
“So I hope Congress can act to fix this issue because it looks like the Supreme Court doesn’t want to.”
Grassley says E15 is safe for almost all cars and is better for the environment than E10, which can be sold year-round.
