A bipartisan bill was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to reform the law that dictates the amount of ethanol that gets blended into the overall fuel supply.

Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., Jim Costa, D-Calif., Steve Womack, R-Ark., and Peter Welch, D-Vt., reintroduced the Renewable Fuel Standard Reform Act — H.R. 1315.

The RFS Reform Act eliminates corn-based ethanol requirements, caps the amount of ethanol that can be blended into conventional gasoline at 10 percent, requires the EPA to set cellulosic biofuels levels at production levels and decreases the total volume of renewable fuel that must be in gasoline sold or introduced into commerce for the years 2017 to 2022.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association came out in support of the bill.
