Naig Disappointed in D.C. Circuit Court’s Ruling on Year-Round E15
DES MOINES, Iowa (July 2, 2021) – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig issued the following statement today in response to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal’s decision that reversed the Environmental Protection Agency’s rule that allowed year-round sales of E15.
“I’m disappointed that the renewable fuels industry has been dealt yet another setback by the Courts. The decision by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has created uncertainty and will cause economic harm to both fuel retailers and farmers. Consumers must have access to these more affordable, cleaner-burning fuels, especially during the summer driving season. I will continue to fight for renewable fuels, a critical part of our state’s economy.”
