API President and CEO, Jack Gerard, responded to EPA’s 2013 biofuel mandates under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), issued nine months after the deadline.
He has called on Congress to repeal the broken mandate immediately.
‘While the administration acknowledges that higher ethanol mandates are unworkable by suggesting a new approach for the 2014 standards, EPA missed an opportunity to fix the problem this year. Now it’s up to Congress to exercise leadership and move quickly to end this dangerous mandate before it hurts consumers, damages vehicles, and harms our economy’.
