With President Trump instructing the Environmental Protection Agency to make way for the year-round sale of E15, he opened the door for a showdown between ethanol advocates and Big Oil.
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley has been one of the loudest voices in Congress to push for year-round E15 sales. The whole Iowa delegation has been strong advocates for the move. Senator Grassley says now is the time we will hear a lot of claims from “Big Oil.”
Grassley says the oil industry already announced plans to challenge an E15 rule before one has even been written.
Grassley says oil industry claims of year-round E15 being a “new mandate” are “false.”
