Congress Introduces Bill to Prohibit E15 Sales

The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a bill that would prohibit the sale of E15 gasoline, capping the amount of ethanol that can be blended into conventional gasoline at 10 percent, according to SEMA Action Network.

The bill (HR 1315) also eliminates the Renewable Fuel Standard’s (RFS) mandate that requires 15-billion gallons of corn-based ethanol be blended into the U.S. fuel supply each year, according to SEMA Action Network. HR 1315 would eliminate mandates imposed under the RFS, such as requiring refiners to blend 36-billion gallons of biofuels by 2022.
