Rep. Bacon Issues Statement on Year-Round E15 Availability

Omaha, NE, October 9, 2018

Omaha, NE – Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02) released the following statement after the President announced he would direct the EPA to commence the rulemaking process to approve E15 sales year-round:

"Nebraska is the second largest producer of ethanol, and today’s announcement by the President to allow the sale of E15 year-round is a big win for our state! I had previously urged the President to remove the arbitrary restriction of E15 sales in the summer months, and he kept his promise. This is a boost for Nebraska’s ag economy and will offer more choice for consumers at the pumps."
