Senator Fischer Applauds Upcoming EPA Rule On Year-Round Sale of E-15

Nebraska U.S. Senator Deb Fischer applauds EPA’s rule allowing year-round sale of E-15.

Senator Fischer says that she is pleased by rulemaking for the year-round sale of E-15 as we approach the summer driving season. However, Senator Fischer says she is disturbed by recent revelations that the EPA has been giving ‘hardship exemptions’ to profitable refineries, releasing them from their biofuel blending obligations.

Senator Fischer says she is concerned that the agency’s future actions could negate the positive results of year-round E-15 and negatively impact Nebraska farmers and ethanol producers.
