Matt Gaetz, a lawmaker in the Florida House of Representatives who represents portions of Okaloosa and Santa Rosa counties, wants to get rid of the state’s ethanol mandate.

He wrote a column Wednesday in the Northwest Florida Daily News on the topic.

“When my time in the legislature ends I’ll always be proudest of the outdated, burdensome and sometimes downright silly laws and regulations I fought to repeal,” Gaetz wrote. “One prime example is the Florida requirement that gasoline sold in our state contain between 9 percent and 10 percent ethanol. I hope to scrap this requirement during the upcoming legislative session.”
