Congress Introduces Bills to End Corn Ethanol Mandate

Legislation (H.R. 5212/S. 2519) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate to cap the amount of ethanol that’s required to be blended into the U.S. fuel supply at 9.7% (E10 gasoline).  The bills phase out the federal government’s ethanol mandates by reducing the amount of corn ethanol blended into gasoline by 2 billion gallons a year until the mandate is eliminated in 2030. The EPA has turned to sales of E15 (15% ethanol blended into gasoline) to achieve the law’s artificial mandate. Ethanol, especially in higher concentrations such as E15, can cause damage to older vehicles.
