Hinson Helps Introduce Legislation to Allow for Year-Round Sale of E15, Continues Fight for Iowa's Biofuel Industry

July 15, 2021

Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA) helped introduce the bipartisan Year-Round Fuel Choice Act of 2021. This legislation, introduced by Representatives Angie Craig (D-MN) and Adrian Smith (R-NE), would allow for the year-round sale of E15. This legislation is a direct solution to the recent D.C. Circuit Court ruling that rescinded the Environmental Protection Agency's authority to allow the sale of E15 during summer months.

"The D.C. Circuit Court's ruling reversing the year-round sale of E15 was incredibly disappointing and misguided. Not only is the year round sale of E15 critical to Iowa's farmers and biofuel producers, but maximizing the use of higher ethanol blends will help lower prices at the pump and help our environment. I was proud to help introduce this bipartisan legislation to ensure that Iowa's biofuel producers can sell E15 year-round."
