WASHINGTON, D.C. – “The President’s proposal to waive the rules for E15 is unlawful and could actually make the problems of the Renewable Fuel Standard worse. The President has promised to broker a deal to reform the RFS that works for all stakeholders. This isn’t it. We are disappointed to see that despite good-faith efforts by refiners to find potential solutions, the Administration has unilaterally embraced a one-sided approach that only serves the ethanol community, which has shown little interest in finding common ground.
We urge the President and Acting Administrator Wheeler to abandon this ill-conceived idea and instead take meaningful action that addresses the real problems with the RFS.”
