U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final E-15 (Reid Vapor Pressure) rule to allow for year-round gasoline to be blended above E-10 to E-15. Sasse has been a co-sponsor of legislation supporting the sale of year-round E-15.
“This is a common-sense rule change, and a good move that benefits Nebraska. The EPA's old rule tied the hands of our ethanol producers with unnecessary red tape. This is great news that helps hard-working corn growers and Nebraskans at the pump.”
