The CEO of the American Coalition for Ethanol says he will not accept the government shutdown as an excuse if E15 relief does not occur in time for this summer.
Brian Jennings tells Brownfield it’s been more than three months since President Trump directed the EPA to lift Reid Vapor Restrictions.
“EPA could’ve issued a rule-making in October, or November, or December, or January, but they did not. They insisted on waiting until February to issue that proposed rule.”
He says that decision has left very little room to get the rule-making done in time for the 2019 summer driving season.
