Smith Statement on Year-round Sales of E15
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement praising President Trump’s rule to allow the year-round sale of E15 in accordance with legislation introduced by Smith:
“President Trump’s announcement today is the culmination of an effort years in the making. The uninterrupted sale of E15 gives consumers consistency in their fuel tank and farmers consistency in their production. I have long championed the year-round sale of E15, and I am grateful to the President for getting this done.
“Last year, Nebraska sold more ethanol than ever before. Giving consumers the choice to buy E15 during the summer months, can only be a good thing. This is a huge win for Nebraska.”
Smith previously introduced legislation which would have required EPA to use its existing authority to provide a year-round waiver for the sale of E15, as announced today by President Trump.
