Chet Thompson, President and CEO of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), issued the follow statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule regarding modifying the interpretation of Clean Air Act Section 211(h)(4) to extend the E10 volatility waiver to E15, on which AFPM today submitted comments:

“The statutory language leaves no question that the EPA lacks authority to extend the E10 volatility waiver to E15. Finalizing this aspect of the proposed rule would clearly be unlawful, and we strongly oppose it.”
