DES MOINES – Gov. Reynolds released the following statement in response to the EPA delaying the implementation of year-round sale of E15:
“While long overdue, I am thrilled that the EPA has approved our multi-state bipartisan RVP waiver request that will pave the way for year-round E15 and bring certainty to the industry.
“However, the arbitrary delay in implementation this summer is unacceptable and disappointing, but hardly surprising. Iowa won’t accept it without a fight. I look forward to requesting another emergency waiver for this year while at the same time asking the courts to require the Administration to grant our request immediately. Iowans, and all Americans, deserve immediate access to lower-cost, American made E15.”
Tomorrow, Governor Reynolds will address the National Ethanol Conference in Orlando, Florida.
