Governor Reynolds issued the following statement in response to the Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird ending a lawsuit against the EPA due to their delay of E-15 year-round sales: 

 “As governor of the nation’s top ethanol producing state, it is my responsibility to ensure our hard-working farmers have access to every market available. I appreciate Attorney General Bird joining this fight to provide Americans cheaper, cleaner burning E15 year-round. While ending this lawsuit is a victory against the Biden Administration and their attack on American Energy Independence, there is still more work to be done. The Biden Administration’s delay of year-round E-15 for 2024 not only hurts American consumers, but also Iowa producers. I will continue to push the EPA to expand the market for Iowa biofuels.”
