Iowa Governor suggests fight for timely E15 waiver far from over

A Midwestern Governor who led the effort on a year-round E15 waiver says she’ll keep fighting to get the rule finalized before this summer. 

Kim Reynolds of Iowa says while EPA’s proposed rule to lift summertime restrictions on E15 sales is welcome, delaying implementation until April 2024 is unacceptable and disappointing.

“But hardly surprising, and we won’t accept it without a fight.”

Reynolds is requesting another emergency waiver to allow E15 sales this summer while at the same time asking the courts to intervene and require the administration to grant the governors’ request immediately.

“And I’ve also asked for a meeting with President Biden to discuss the critical timeliness of the waiver.”

The Renewable Fuels Association presented Reynolds an industry award Thursday morning at the National Ethanol Conference in Orlando.
