Governor Evers Signs Letter Inquiring About Implementing E15 to be Sold All Year

Monday, November 8th, 2021 -- 9:00 AM

(Wisconsin Ag Connection) Tony Evers was among seven Midwest governors who sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan last week inquiring about the steps necessary to implement a state-level solution to ensure E15 can be sold all year long.

According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, the memo requested guidance from the agency on how their states can end the E10 volatility waiver, which was a provision within the Clean Air Act.

They say the change would allow gasoline blendstocks to be used to produce either E10 or E15 year-round. The letter further stated that the governors are 'exploring all options' to ensure retailers are able to sell E-15 to consumers all year long without interruption.

Wisconsin BioFuels Association President Erik Huschitt said it was unfortunate that a recent D.C. Circuit Court decision overturned the EPA's 2019 regulation that finally facilitated this year-round sale of this cleaner economical blend.

He says Congress or the EPA needs to take action to preserve nationwide access to E15. The letter was also signed by the governors of Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Missouri.
