South Dakota Ethanol Industry Fights Back on Limits

Posted on Nov 29, 2013

Ethanol supporters are mounting an all-out lobbying blitz they hope will persuade the White House to backtrack on its decision to reduce the amount of the renewable fuel required to be mixed into the country’s gasoline supply next year.

Earlier this month, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed cutting the fuel requirement in 2014 to 15.2 billion gallons of ethanol and other biofuels, 3 billion gallons less than Congress required in a 2007 law. Traditional biofuels, produced mainly from corn, would be reduced to 13 billion gallons from 14.4 billion.
