States move to implement E15Posted on
Efforts to clear the way for the eventual sale of gasoline that contains 15 percent ethanol are under way in Nebraska and Illinois, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported.
The Illinois bill would authorize the state to encourage service stations to offer E15 and provide information about any financial incentives that might be developed for service stations.
The Nebraska bill would eliminate labeling requirements for ethanol fuel dispensed at service stations.
The NMMA is opposing both bills.
Last year, the Environmental Protection Agency approved E15 for use in cars and light trucks from model-year 2007 or newer. In January, the agency expanded the rule to include cars, SUVs and light pickup trucks built between 2001 and 2006.
E15 has not been approved for use in boat engines.
The NMMA and other groups have filed suit against the federal agency over its decision.
