The Environmental Protection Agency sent a draft rule this week to allow for year-round sales of E15 to the Office of Management and Budget for review. This is the next step in the regulatory process and meeting expectations that this rulemaking be completed
when the summer driving season begins June 1.
"NCGA is pleased to see the process move forward and will be providing input during this important phase," said NCGA President Lynn Chrisp. "A timely rule is important for the summer driving season but it's also important that the rule is done right."
The farm group announced it will be providing OMB with input to help ensure a strong, clear rule for E15.
Following the review and interagency approval, EPA will issue a proposed rule for public comment.
