WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, released the following statement in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final rule approving a request from a group of Midwest governors to allow the year-round sale of gasoline with higher blends of ethanol, effective in 2025.

“While I appreciate that the EPA has finally approved the year-round availability of E-15, the limited geography and needless delay until 2025 still complicates its sale. Congress must pass my legislation that will at last provide a nationwide, permanent solution for the sale of this blend that benefits consumers, producers, and the environment,” said Senator Fischer.
