EPA Renewable Fuel Standard Proposal Hurts the American Consumer

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.”
