Hinson blasts EPA for E15 inaction

U.S. Congresswoman Ashley Hinson says she doesn’t understand why the Environmental Protection Agency is waiting to approve year-round sales of E15.

“The EPA has been dragging its feet,” she said. “They need to respond to what many members of Congress in both chambers have been asking them for.”

The Iowa Republican tells Brownfield she recently signed onto a letter that asks the Biden administration to approve an E15 petition from Midwestern governors.

“This infrastructure is ready to meet consumer demand right away,” Hinson said. “This is about certainty.”

The Renewable Fuels Association says the EPA is hundreds of days past the 90-day deadline to get the regulations finalized.
