Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. —Congressman Darin LaHood released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed today a regulatory change to allow gasoline blended with up to 15 percent ethanol (E15) to be sold year-round:

“This announced rule change by the EPA to allow the year-round sale of E15 is welcome news for our agriculture producers in central and west-central Illinois. Ethanol sales help drive demand for corn in Illinois and the announcement today is an important step towards broadening opportunities for our farmers in Illinois’ 18th District,” stated Rep. LaHood. “I appreciate the efforts of President Trump and Administrator Wheeler to making E15 accessible to consumers nationwide and year-round. I will continue to work with both leaders to promote more cost-effective choices that reduce gas emissions and expand opportunities for our agriculture community.”
