WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) renewable fuel standard proposal to increase ethanol volume obligations to nearly 19 billion gallons in 2017:

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Proposing that nearly 19 billion gallons of ethanol be incorporated into the fuel supply is another example of excessive EPA bureaucratic over-reach – a mandate that is harmful to American consumers and robs them of their freedom to choose. Environmentally, it probably does more harm than good, and it will lead to misfueling, damaged engines, voided warranties, and increased emissions. The EPA should not be in the business of limiting choices or picking winners and losers when it comes to ethanol.”

    Mr. Sensenbrenner would like us to think that the EPA shouldn’t have the right to begin aggressively curtailing the fossil fuel effects on our atmosphere. It’s not the market we are trying to save Congressman. We are trying to save us!

  2. Gary Rebholz says:

    Ditto what Michael Schwister wrote.

  3. David Groh says:

    Better than ethanol is the electric powered car. It is much more efficient and can be fueled with renewables.
