Ricketts Comments on EPA Allowing Summer Sales of E15

April 19, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts (R-NE), a member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, commented on the announcement that the Environmental Protection Agency would issue an emergency waiver to allow the sale of E15 this summer:

“E15 enjoys bipartisan support because it saves drivers money at the pump, cleans our environment, and supports Nebraska farmers and American agriculture. Today’s announcement is a step forward, but our producers shouldn’t have to rely on bureaucratic waivers. Let’s pass Senator Fischer’s Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act and make year-round E15 permanent.”
