The National Marine Manufacturers Association is asking members of the marine industry to weigh in on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to reduce the amount of ethanol required by the Renewable Fuel Standard.

“We already know that the ethanol and corn lobbies are submitting thousands of comments,” NMMA said in its call to action. “It's time to take action and let the EPA know that you want lower ethanol mandates in 2014. It's up to the boating community to show how this flawed policy is having devastating consequences on our industry.”

Testimony from stakeholders has been given on Capitol Hill regarding the EPA’s proposal.

Public comments are due by Jan. 28.
