EPA'S ETHANOL ADDITIVE PROPOSAL DRAWS FIRE
Federal lawmakers have challenged the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed rule requiring that 30% of the oxygen content of U.S. reformulated gasoline (RFG) come from ethanol. More than 100 representatives and 51 senators, a majority, have gone on record against EPA's proposal (OGJ, Mar. 14, p. 36). Only corn belt senators defended the plan during a Senate energy committee hearing.
