Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says the fact Administrator Wheeler is coming to Iowa is a good sign.

Skor says she is hopeful the meeting will help make E15 available year-round.

Skor says attaching Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) to exports is a non-starter for negotiating year-round E15. It is just a “get out of jail free card” for refiners.
