Grassley Talks Tough on EPA Refinery Waivers

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa wants EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to stop issuing “small refinery hardship exemptions” or step down from the job.

Grassley was one of the four senators who met with President Trump last week to try and finally resolve differences over the RFS between corn ethanol and oil interests. In the call with reporters, EPA should make sure blend levels match statutory level of 15 billion gallons set by Congress or it will undo the benefits of allowing year-round E15. Grassley also said the EPA is “going to try” to make the summer vapor pressure waiver applicable this year.
