Smith Statement on Proposed Changes to Ethanol Requirements

Nov 15, 2013 Issues: Agriculture, Energy

Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) issued the following statement today after the Environmental Protection Agency proposed scaling back the amount of renewable fuels blended into gasoline for 2014:

“America must continue to diversify our energy portfolio and increase production from all sources of fuel.  Ethanol provides consumers in Nebraska and across America with a competitive, clean, domestically-produced alternative.  As the Environmental Protection Agency reviews comments submitted on the proposed changes, I hope sound science and the rule of law will prevail after a full consideration of the facts and the need for greater consumer choice.”
