Iowa Representatives send letter to EPA admin Regan over E15 sales

Iowa’s congressional representatives are asking the Environmental Protection Agency to implement year-round sales of E15 this summer.

Republican Zach Nunn tells Brownfield the EPA’s proposed rule to delay summertime sales of E15 until 2024 is disappointing.

“The Biden administration and others have pushed back on year-round E15 that would drive down the cost of fuel, the cost of the supply chain, and the cost of food at the grocery store for families,” he said.

In a letter to EPA Administrator Michael Regan, the Iowa delegation said a delayed implementation of the rule will increase the ongoing financial strain on farmers.

Nunn says the agency still has time to make a change.

“The EPA pushed this out into the future, but we think this can happen in 2023,” he said. “There’s no reason for it not to. The administration has the ability to execute on this, and Congress is supporting it.”

Attorneys general in Iowa and Nebraska recently notified the EPA of their intent to sue for delaying year-round E15 sales.
